I think what Dr. Norman is saying is that the eyes don't project to
contralateral hemispheres only.  Rather, it's the visual fields that project
to contra hemispheres.  I've inferred from your comments that you're under
the impression that a signal entering the left eye will be segregated to the
right hemisphere, but this is not so.  If I'm mischaracterizing your
statements, I apologize.
