Optometrists Warn That Emo Hair Can Cause Lazy Eye
Now emo kids have another reason to hate all things outside of Hot Topic, as their beloved hair over-the-eye look has been linked to amblyopia — better known as lazy eye.
A new study says that you may not be able to read the liner notes of Black Veil Brides next album as well as their last release. How do I know this? Because if you buy that, chances are you’re wearing all black, probably a little bit of makeup and you have the classic emo haircut. You know the one — hair dramatically swept over one of your ocular cavities. According to some doctor dude from down under, you may already
hate your parents have amblyopia.
Andrew Hogan, who is a national executive member on the Australian Optometrist’s Association, recently broke down the obvious phenomenon for The Daily Telegraph. “If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won’t see a lot of detail,” said Hogan. “And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic.” Even though Hogan says the effects are most detrimental to your vision in the first seven years of life, it can still drastically affect your vision as an adult.
So what’s the moral of the story? Get a haircut. You look ridiculous anyway.
