Adam "Red Eyes" Jones

OK, so the nickname needs some help. But taking a closer look at Adam Jones' eyes and there is a visible red ring encasing the retina. No joke.
According to Jones, he's wearing a new contact lens produced by Nike that helps shade out the sun so he can see the ball better, such as when he's fielding punts.
"They're pretty good and I enjoy them. It helps block out the sun," Jones said.
They are a prescription lens, because as Jones said, "I'm blind."
Even though Jones has the cash to probably afford Lasic surgery, he's not interested. Apparently he has a few friends that had the procedure done and it didn't go seamless.
So Jones will stick with the contacts.

Circling his retina? I'm no biologist, but are you sure you didn't mean iris?
