Why did Edge have an eye patch?

Does anyone know what happened to him? Or was he just wearing it for fun? I've seen this picture around, but I've never heard any story behind it.



Edge doesn't look right with an eye patch. He just seems too nice to be wearing something like that.

Eye infection. One of the great mysteries that was finally solved by our own dsmith (she asked him).

Awwh, poor thing. Is that something to do with why the lid of his left eye seems to be a bit different to the other one? Cos he didn't have it when he was young.

Shouldn't this just be put in a giant U2 FAQ list?

I swear I've seen this question at least once a month... :S

First time I've ever seen it. I don't doubt it has been asked before though.

It usually gets asked when people post any of those Baby Edge pics. Here's my story of asking Edge about his eye.

Thanks for the info. I had never heard anything about it before. And I have seen some pics where one of his eyes seems different from the other. It must have been a bad infection if he had to wear a patch!

And I also read in the description of the show where he had the eye patch in "U2: A Concert Documentary" that his playing was a little off. Poor kid, being one eye down must have really messed with his depth perception and so forth.

With that mystery solved, I now want to find out from Edge if they ever got their dog Fleetwood back.
