...No matter which approach you use, you're busy in the cockpit and any subsequent looks should just be verifying what you have already determined before committing.
Busy doing what?
I find the approach to landing the quietest time of the flight (noise and workload). All checklists are complete on downwind nothing left to do on base/final but monitor airspeed and glidepath and watch for other traffic - birds, planes, cars & trucks. Even time during that period for a little sightseeing
Even do a double check of the essentials, carb heat, gear, boost pump flaps.
