So... Dont laugh... I have drawn an image/shape with the brush (stroke no fill) and I want to select it, copy it and reflect it horizpntally so I have an exact mirror copy (its an eye so im going for symmetry here) It is on its own layer with the rest of the line art. 

Thank you a million times!!!

Drag out a guide to the center of the face. Drag out a rectangular selection from that guide, enclosing the eyes. Free Transform a copy (Alt+Control+T), setting the reference point to middle left,  and horizontal scaling to -100%.

I would recommend a Smart Object approach. 

Cut the pertinent Elements to a Layer of their own, convert to Smart Object, duplicate, flip and reposition. 

 

Are you familiar with Symmetry Painting?

The advantage of Smart Object instances in this case is that changes update in all the instances.
