Johnny Depp has revealed the real reason for always wearing tinted glasses, admitting he is “basically blind as a bat” in his left eye.
Johnny Depp, 50, told Rolling Stone magazine that he has been suffering from eyesight issues from birth, and is forced to rely heavily on his prescription glasses.
In addition, Johnny Depp said that he is near-sighted in his right eye, and neither condition can be treated.
The actor explained: “Everything is just very, very blurry. I’ve never had proper vision.”
And while Johnny Depp is able to rely in his glasses in his personal life, when it comes to his film roles it’s more difficult.
In his most famous guises such as Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands and the most recent Tonto in The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp is forced to go without his glasses while filming – meaning he can only see a few inches in front of him at any one time.
