I would imagine left eyed people are in a minority, so the manufacturers don't want to start catering for you & increasing their costs for the minority.

Not so.
Several polls, both on this site and others, show that the division is roughly 50:50.




But these polls are naturally biased.  To be accurate, you need to pick a random selection of people.  These polls potentially attract more people for whom this would be an issue, i.e. people with a dominant left eye, rather than a random selection.

Everything to do with photography is a guideline. The only rules are generally enforced by the police.
