This just in! Optometrists Association national executive member Andrew Hogan warned amblyopia – the medical term for lazy eye – could result from obstructed vision caused by hair.
I can understand hysteria over the health hazards of the Brazilian blowout or the toxic nail polish, but side bangs?? Can you believe this
Dr. Hogan recently told the Daily Telegraph that the hair covering the eye acts like an eyepatch, which prevents the eye’s access to sunlight and stimulation, which can weaken the eye and cause short sightedness:
“If you walk around with an eyepatch on all day, then that eye will end up seeing more poorly than the other eye.”
Amblyopia occurs when the nerve pathway from one eye to the brain does not develop because the abnormal eye sends a blurred image to the brain.
Well I guess Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Taylor Swift and a whole slew of celebrities have a lazy eye diagnosis in the near future to look forward to.
What do you think of this?
