There is a theory that the main character, John Marston, has a blind left-eye.

http://reddead.wikia.com/wiki/John_Marston#Trivia
There is some evidence supporting the theory such as after using Dead-Eye, he will sometimes comment "I think like I got my eye back."

His Deadly-Assassin outfit includes an eye-patch that goes over his left-eye.

During cutscenes, John seems to rotate his head further to see more clearly to his left side.

The Undead version of John is missing his left eye.

There's also another interesting bit hinting at this, which is a comparison between John Marston and Johnny Klebitz; Both share similar names, both rode in gangs that left them both for dead and come from rough backgrounds, both have antagonists named Bill/Billy, both had a girlfriend/wife that was considered "everymans", both are forced to work with the government to save themselves and those they care about, and it is implied Johnny has a weakened/blind eye. ("Oh. I should use my good eye.")

Interesting - It's a well thought out theory. Would love to know if this was intentional.

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

John Marston and his wife Abigail Marston share the same names as the second President of the United States and his wife, John Adams and Abigail Adams. Both families also had a son named John as well ("Jack" is a diminutive name for John) and both had a daughter die very early in their life.
