There's a theory about that Doflamingo wears his iconic glasses because he's blind to his (IIRC) left eye. It was assumed because whenever his eyes were shown (quite rarely), it was actully always only the left one.

Is there anything we can know about it in canon? Any kind of disease of injury that would possibly, even theoretically justify it?

    Where did you read about this theory? – Michael McQuade Sep 12 '16 at 23:26
  • @MichaelMcQuade I can't really define an exact place, I read sources almost randomly, usually on Facebook and in the relevant sub of Reddit. – Katamori Sep 13 '16 at 6:40
  • there's no mention of scar on Flamingo Eye on his wiki page. . . . – Tanya von Degurechaff Sep 13 '16 at 11:00
  • @NamikazeSheena I'm not necessarily implying a scar, but as I said, there's one eye that has never ever been shown, – Katamori Sep 13 '16 at 12:10

    I think the simplest answer to this question is No. There is nothing in canon that signifies Doflamingo missing an eye. This is just one of the many unproven theories, something a series as vast as One Piece would be cursed with. Unless Oda clarifies, the answer stays no. – Arcane Sep 13 '16 at 20:22

I guess i can assume that it is somehow of a correct theory, since in Doflamingo's past (as a little kid) you could see an arrow heading his way in the reflection of his sunglasses, as if they were heading for his left eye. But if it even struck him is unknown.

    If you could include the actual moment where this happened (chap num/page num | picture) this would actually be a good answer. – Dimitri mx Jul 25 '17 at 12:16
