Bono's glasses
 
:wave:


This may seem like a completely unimportant question, but I'm just curious if anyone knows the answer.
Are Bono's ever present glasses just for looks or does he need them to see ?

I think he doesn't need them to see properly. I remember he said once that he wore the sunglasses because he is allergic to red wine and his eyes turned red and all.

He also said at Harvard that "these aren't sunglasses, these are protection" :shrug:

He looks cool with the shades but I'd like to see those beautiful eyes more often.

I would think that if he needed his glasses to actually see he would have had lasik (laser) eye surgery long ago. It's a fairly quick, painless process with hardly any recovery time. My brother had it done and he said it was the best thing he's ever done for himself. No more contacts or glasses.

Not to mention the fact that Bono takes his glasses off while he's on stage so he must not need them to see or he would have fallen off the heart every nite! :)

I think he mainly wears them for looks. He doesn't really need them, he just likes them.

My thoughts too. Ever since he became the Fly, the glasses are just another part of him. :bono:

I think some of his might really be eyeglasses, like the ones at the Harvard speech and other times. The sunglasses guys couldn't find the manufacturer of those but they could all the others, so that makes me think they weren't made by some cool sunglasses designer, but an optometrist. It's no big deal, lots of people have glasses. I hope he DOES NOT get laser surgery!! That is dangerous and can ruin your sight if done wrong or as time goes on.

Even so I don't think he NEEDS them to see. He takes them off in concerts and I think he can see okay without them. He doesn't need surgery and his sunglasses are probably not prescription.

He's said many times that he's ''hiding behind a pair of fly shades''. Whatever that means.

I think he hides behind them. I suspect that Bono has anxiety sometimes about "being exposed". For some reason, he does feel a sense of protection even if that isn't really reality. I used to think he did it for looks. I think it started that way and then became a coping devise. He's so much more insecure than we would think. Just my take.

I agree
