U2’s Bono to launch sunglasses range


U2 frontman Bono is to create a line of sunglasses.

The 55-year-old Irish rocker, who has had problems with his own vision, is partnering with eyewear brand Revo for a new range of sunnies, as part of the Buy Vision, Give Sight campaign.

Bono has already been wearing items from the collection during U2′s sold-out North American tour, and the range – which aims to raise $10m for screening, spectacles and other assistance to the impoverished – will be available in the autumn.

Revo will donate $10 for each pair of glasses it sells.

Bono, who was diagnosed with glaucoma two decades ago, said his eyesight is OK now.

“Tens of millions of people around the world with sight problems don’t have access to glasses, or even a basic eye test,” he said, calling sight “a human right.”
