Why bono Wears Sunglasses

Last week was World Glaucoma Awareness Week and we at SITE have highlighted the need for everyone to receive regular eye examinations.

Bono, the U2 frontman, stated a while ago he has suffered from glaucoma for around two decades, prompting ever-present dark glasses
Many people had assumed his ever-present sunglasses – even indoors – were a rock star affectation.
Now if he combined his sunglasses with a white cane people may have put two and two together a long time ago.
But people never equate wearing sunglasses alone with eye conditions – unless you keep falling over furniture or walking into walls!

However, on a serious note recent research noted that Five million motorists have eyesight so bad that they are a hazard on the road and those who have been prescribed glasses don’t actually wear them.
Bottom line is that glaucoma can be treated if detected early so encourage everyone you know to have regular eye examinations.
