Noel Gallagher losing sight

Noel Gallagher is losing his sight.

The 47-year-old rocker has revealed his eyesight has started to become blurry but he doesn't want to wear glasses, and will only embark on treatment to prevent the deterioration of his ailing vision when he is unable to tell the difference between his wife, Sara MacDonald, and other women.

He said: "I do need glasses. But I'm going to wait until I walk into a restaurant and accidentally kiss other women while my wife is at another table before I do anything about it. Then I'm going to get them lasered."

However, his poor eyesight is the least of his worries as the former Oasis star - who has 15-year-old daughter Anais, as well as sons Donovan, seven, and Sonny, four - is terrified of losing his hair as he grows older.

Speaking about the prospect of being bald, he said: "I don't have the face for it, my nose is so big that I can't wear a hat."

And while he is well known for penning some of Oasis' greatest hits along with two albums worth of solo material, the star admitted he would rather be unable to write further hits than lose his trademark hairstyle.

He told The Sun newspaper: "If my hair ever goes, it's getting shaved. I'd rather lose my songwriting ability than my barnet. I've written loads of great songs, but it doesn't work without the hairdo."
