^ damn, he might have to get those cataract glasses with the side shielding or something similar. I wonder if flashing stage lighting gets to him as much as photo bulbs?

Bono apparently has low standards when it comes to friends.

If the condition gets really bad they don't have to tour and with the time they save by not touring they could get albums out every other year.

I'm not just deaf and dumb, I'm staring at the sun, I'm not the only one, who's happy to go blind...  8)

Sounds like keratoconus. Bono's had this eye issue since the '80s. Once you hit a certain age, it usually stops degenerating and doesn't get any worse. 40 or so. The cornea is warped, making your eye very light sensitive. How do I know all this? The Edge's Cat is a doctor, of course. All his pets are scientists.
