Hi,
   You can connect to the database using a DBA privileged user name and drop the user like this:
Drop user lefteye cascade;
This is an irreversable action and all objects belonging to this user and the username is also dropped.

To be on the safe side, keep an export dump of the schema before drop.

Yes, but make sure that there is no session open with the username lefteye ... if any session is open with a username, then you can't drop that user.
