Having "emo" hair can cause lazy eye. Who knew?
A leading optometrist has warned children and teenagers are risking their eyesight for the sake of fashion.
by celebrities including Reece Mastin and Justin Bieber, the current
zeal for haircuts with fringes that flop over one eye could result in a
generation of young people with lazy eyes.
Association national executive member Andrew Hogan warned amblyopia -
the medical term for lazy eye - could result from obstructed vision
caused by hair.
"If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won't see a lot of detail," Mr Hogan said.
"And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic."
