Doctor claims 'emo fringes cause lazy eye'

Emos! Look Out ! You could be knackering your vision! Or not....

Credit to NME for spotting this story-- in possibly the lamest attempt to engineer a scare we've seen for some time, a Tasmanian doctor has been voicing his fears that your stereotypical emo fringe can make an eye turn amblyotic-- known to you or I as lazy eye syndrome. The doctor, Andrew Hogan, education director of the Optometrists Association of Tasmania, was quoted as saying

"If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won't see a lot of detail. And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic."

God knows why this Tasmanian maniac has decided to put the terror of lazy eye in hordes of  'misunderstood' teenage Paramore fans- unsurprisingly the claims have been roundly refuted--

"The story would only be true if you had somebody young enough, and if that person never looked out of that eye - if it was blocked 24-7. The reason it's false is that you don't have that constant deprivation." stated Dr Leonard Press of New Jersey to MSNBC,

OK, in all honesty, part of us is a little sad this isn't true-- finally any arguments over who was 'keeping it real' could be put to rest-- it's pretty hard to argue that someone who loves their look enough to render themselves perpetually cod eyed isn't emo for keepsies eh...
