The Truth Behind Johnny Depp’s Tinted Glasses Revealed

These days, Johnny Depp is almost always spotted rocking his signature tinted shades wherever he goes, even indoors. But the handsome actor has revealed the real reason for his quirky staple accessory, admitting that he’s “basically blind as a bat” in his left eye.

In the July 4 issue of Rolling Stone, the 50-year-old explained that he has suffered from bad vision since birth and it has forced him to rely heavily on his prescription glasses. The “Lone Ranger” star told the mag, “Everything is just very, very blurry. I’ve never had proper vision.”

It sounds like the specs are less of a fashion statement and more a necessity! Check out the vid to hear what Johnny had to say about the challenge of acting without his tinted frames!
