In all the adaptations of Deadshot, I have always notices the lens/patch on his right eye:

Arrow

Smallville

Smallville

Justice League

Justice League

This his how he is portrayed in the comics:

But in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, the lens is on his left eye:

Why is the lens eye changed from right to left for the upcoming film? Is there any reason behind this or is it just random?

No official explanation AFAIK, but this theory seems likely:

It’s also pleasant to see that Ayer and his costume team have realized that the actual mechanics of placing an augmented eye… device into the scope of a rifle could prove a little clunky, or redundant. As a result, it will be Smith’s left eye sporting the visual boost. Either that, or Smith is simply more dominant in one eye over the other (unlike Deathstroke, Deadshot isn’t considered to have one eye ‘missing,’ but either a cybernetically-enhanced eye, or both intact, depending on the writer).
