Our eyes are sensitive, even to very low doses of x-ray radiation exposure. X-ray radiation directed toward the lens surface can cause cataract, sometimes with a delay of several months to a year before opacities appear

Healthy Eye

X-Ray Induced Cataract

The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has revised its eye dose threshold and the occupational annual dose limit significantly downwards. More recent epidemiological studies suggest a ‘no threshold’, as even extremely low doses of radiation can induce cataracts.

 

Protect your eyes against a decrease in eyesight, sharpness, ability to focus and see objects in bright sunlight, which are among the typical symptoms with posterior subscapular cataracts.
