I know what he's said about his eyes being sensitive, and I'm sure that is true. However, I really think he wears the glasses mainly as a filter between him and the world.

The guy can't go anywhere without having people taking pictures of him, wanting a piece of him so to speak. I don't blame him at all for wanting to hide behind his shades most of the time.

Well we know for sure they aren't some high tech teleprompter.

I think he's just channeling Roy Orbison and Elvis Costello...

I don't get why allergies would mean he should always wear sunglasses? I thought it was more because he's sick of the flashes and spotlights on him all the time, they hurt your eyes after a while.

But personally, I don't think it's the real reason. I think it's habit, the Bono persona he's created for himself, and maybe some insecurity like it's easier to be the Bono persona than the real Bono.

I don't really like them because there aren't many colors or styles I like on him and now so many other celebs wear them all the time, it's pretty annoying. I swear the man has more shades than all of my shoes, purses/bags, and other accessories combined. It's rather diva-ish in a way. He's becoming a caricature of himself.

Well maybe he just likes wearing them too. Nothing wrong with that It's none of our business anyways what he likes to wear. Even though we like to make it our business.

Plus there's so many other celebs that do it, it's not really signature anymore. He should find something new...

Yeah I'd love to see his eyes more too, he's got great eyes. Some of the situations mentioned here though that people think he should not be wearing glasses (like at night, indoors... ) I'm sure he gets just as many people snapping pictures, (and flash pictures at that) in those situations, so why shouldn't he protect his eyes then too, probably even more so with the flashes.


Can you imagine being constantly photographed no matter where you go or what you are doing every single day of your life? Dang.

I totally agree with Lies. I highly doubt it has to do with sensitive eyes. I think he just liked to wear them, thought it was a cool "rock star" thing to do and it became his trademark. It's getting kinda old thats for sure.

It's the same reason I wear a welder's mask to the grocery store. Those colourful fruit and veggies are blinding...BLINDING!

The 'round-the-clock shades were cool when they were about irony. I agree, it's time for something new and less forced.

"See the world in green and blue." That, and red, are about all he's seen it in since 1992.

I'm pretty sure they're only tinted on the outer layer.

It's probably both reasons. Sensitive eyes. And he likes wearing them.
