Bono is known for ALWAYS wearing sunglasses, almost more than he is for being U2's lead singer! LOLz!
It turns out that the sunglasses aren't just a fashion statement.
His good friend Julian Lennon said that Bono wears the glasses because his eyes are very sensitive to light, but that's because of a condition he has… and it's getting worse!
"Bono actually has a condition with his eyes. I don't know the exact issue but the brightness of the sun hurts them and it's a deteriorating issue."
Oh no! So it's only going to get worse??
That's just awful!
He is apparently so sensitive to light, he has trouble with the paparrazi!
"I have very sensitive eyes to light. If somebody takes a photograph, I will see the flash for the rest of the day. My right eye swells up."
Jeez! That's just terrible.
Especially in his line of work where constantly flashing lights are standard practice!
At least his ears are fine, so he can keep the U2 hits coming!
