His training was so bad ass that he lost an eye in the process. What other explanation is needed? And if Zoro's lost eye needs explaining I demand an explanation about Sanji's goatee. Why did he grow it? What type of razor does he use to trim it? Was growing it out his idea or one of the newkama's?
I think that is a bit of an exageration. You get a goatee on a whim, maybe you lose a bet or heck, he might have seen to many village people-ish characters... An eye is an entirely different matter. Its not just about zoro getting such an awesome training that his eue popped out out of sheer awesomeness, zoro was actually mutilated, this is a grave injury which he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. In turn, if sanji gets bored he just shaves the damn thing off or vibrates his chin so as to burn it off. At the very least I would think there is a justification to show how zoro was mutilated and half blinded while showing the goatee part is mildly less relevant...
don't know if anyone made any comments on that, but a quite logical theory on zorro's lost eye
maybe he blinded himself, so he would give himself a disadvantage against mihawk, balancing his training advantages
so their final fight would be fair, without zorro's moral problem of having learned from hiss enemy
Even though I mostly agree with kkck I actually hope that Zoro didn't loose his eye. I hope he has just a scar and he doesn't open his eye just because it might be painful and as he also doesn't need to open his second eye to fight trash.
Did anyone watch the Shura no Toki anime? With the badass hand to hand fighters...the Mutsus? Well there was one Mutsu who opened up his right eye only when in a serious fight...so I think it's the same with Zorro...just more badassery
I hope it will be like this. It would actually fit Zoro's character. Maybe he will open his eye if in the upcoming chapters he will have to face Tashigi? Maybe it would be because he would be surprised not only because of seeing her, but also because he managed to develop her swordsmanship to a great degree.
We will get an explanation sooner or later. It's kind of like that facial scar Luffy has, even if he got it in a ridiculous manner we will hear about it though I'm sure Zoro's story will be slightly more epic. I believe we will find out the truth about wether his eye still works the first time he has to put his bandanna on, since we know he will be completely serious against whoever he is fighting.
Just accept it guys, the next time that he opens his eye hes going to put the whole world under an illusion.
Oh whops...wrong manga.
He's obviously hiding a pacifista laser in his left eye. The scar is from the surgery.

To think of it again.. one more theory comes to mind... We have not seen mihawk after time skip yet.. so it might be a case that they were attacked by someone.. and something has happened to mihawk and zoro managed with one eye gone to survive...
May be after akainu became the in charge he might have thought that marine does not need schichibukai like mihawk who does not care about the government... Moriah got on hit list and was tried to be anihiliated... kuma already turned into a cyborg who takes orders... doflamingo is a pet... buggy will be a weak schichibukai who will again be a pet to governement ... hancock and her island is on mercy of world govt since world govt have ships that can travel in calm belt .... so only remaining one is mihawk... in these two years there is a chance that he may have got attacked...

This theory is solid, and I will add to it, and since he has already explained zoro's abiliy then I will leave him out.
Rayleigh-I always wondered why they called him the Dark King. Dark implies that he is or was evil, but we have seen Rayleigh in flashbacks at different points and he didn't seem to be evil.
The only reason I believe they called him Dark King is because of his power or technique. The guy said in the youtube video that Zoro could beholding the asura in his eye from the cursed sword, and the reason for the slash on his eye allows him to keep his eye closed to control it.
Rayleigh has a scar over his right eye, and at first I thought it was nothing, but then I think Rayleigh could have the same power of a demon and that's why he is called the Dark King because he was so terrifying in his demon form so to speak
Shililew-When he is first introduced, he seems to have one of his eyes closed. I think he has the same ability, but he has mastered the ability to control his cursed sword, just like Mihawk and Rayleigh so he doesn't need to keep his eye closed.
Mihawk- Look at Mihawk eyes, they are strange to began with, so maybe his eyes helped him focus and he didn't need to close his eye to control the demon from the cursed sword
Merged both threads since they deal with the same subject.
I don't think there's any secret power behind Zoro's left eye, honestly... but I also doubt it's truly gone simply because Oda made sure no character even mentioned it once. I mean, after 2 years it would be pretty reasonable to hear Luffy or Sanji or someone else ask Zoro what happened to his left eye... but nobody did. That's basically what Oda always does when he has a surprise in store... he never talks about it until it's the right time to show it in all its glory. If it were truly gone, at least one character would have brought up the topic already and got an answer for that.
That's my 2 cents, of course.
