For my EDC 3rd Gen G26 I installed:

Glock Steel Rear Sight With White Plastic Insert:

http://glockparts.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=925734&CAT=742

This sight overhangs just short of flush with the back of the slide, and is not the OEM "pyramid" style sight.

And...

AmeriGlo GW116 Steel White Dot Front Sight:

http://www.ameriglo.net/catalog/sigh...s/front-sights

This is an actual sight "blade" and not the OEM "nub" style sight.

Installation was a snap using the tips available here and on YouTube...

A little care must be taken to get the front sight blade precisely at 12:00 & 6:00 o'clock. I did this by gripping the front sight blade with a small crescent wrench wrapped with tape, while carefully tightening the nut 1/2 turn past finger tight... Just make sure your final adjustment is a "tightening adjustment"...

I used Loctite, of course!

Several thousand rounds and multiple holsterings and reholsterings later, everything has stayed put!

Our other 3rd Gen Glocks are equipped as follows:

G17: Dawson Precision FO Front, Matte-Black Adj Rear **

G19: Trijicon Stadard 3-Dot With Sight Markers All Around *

G21: Glock OEM Night Sights *

--Ray

* Also fitted with LaserMax Guide Rod Lasers.

** Also equipped with LaserMax LMS-UNI-G green rail-mounted laser.

I also am cross eye dominant, and experienced the exact challenge you have. I think it's the combination of Speed Sight's big orange front sight (WAY easier to pickup than anything I've ever used) and the precision of the "diamond" pattern.
Not everyone loves them as much as I do, maybe it's the cross eye dominance thing.

meprolite green three dot on my 27. Ameriglo Idot Pro green front/yellow rear on my 19. Glock steel rear and a meprolite green tritium front on my 23, trijicon three dot on the 36 I got rid of, and trijicon green front yellor rear on my 30. My next sights will be black rear green tritium front warren tacticals. Be safe.

Warren Tacticals, bright green front sight with subdued rear. These have given far and away my best shooting performance with a handgun. They're fast and give me a fantastic sight picture. I am going to put them on all of my social pistols.

I really like the style of those. It really sucks that one can't just try a set of sights by renting them at the range like one can a handgun. This is making my decision making process a bit more difficult than usual.

If it helps, my truglo tfo's aren't much different than your meprolights, and after using the speed sights on my G26 I'm spending ANOTHER $170 bucks to put speed sights on my G29 and dump a 2-yr old set of $100 TFO's.

Update:
Retired the 17 with Trijicon HD's, now resides with my brother-in-law, after nearly 5000 flawless rounds. Now carrying the USA made 17 with I-Dot's, like'm a lot.
The Gen4 19 just installed Heinie Slant-Pro 3 Dots today. Next is a JM Custom Kydex OWB holster for it.

Stock factory sights on all my Glocks. I have been using factory sights since 1988 and they work for me.

I've used just about everything over the years but I always come back to Ameriglo Operators, yellow rear. The .125 front just provides a more usable sight picture, for me, once you get past bad breath range than the wider fronts. The white dot also doesn't overpower or bloom out the top of the blade, like some other offerings.

The ones I wish I could get are the old race cut Heinies. Too bad GLOCK Racing is out of business.

You can order a .156 notch direct from Heinie. They call it the "QWIK" notch and it is avail in many configurations. I have 3 dot night sight versions on a Glock 34 and 17.

Those are slightly wider than the Warrens I got at .150 wide, with a similar configuration (two lamps).

Thanks for the heads up.
