I heard this drill at open water camp last week. (Thanks, Dave) Only one eye should be above water when you breathe. Close the eye that should be above water (if you are breathing on the right side, you close your right eye). When your eye is closed and you breathe you should see only water. If you see above the water your head is too high.

This works better if you only breathe on one side for awhile. I found if I breathe every 3 strokes I have to think too hard which eye should be closed.
