Is there any correlation that you know about with radiation exposure and vision loss?
There are cornea (dome-shaped window covering front of eye), conjunctiva (thin transparent membrane covering the white of the eye), lens, and retinal effects from radiation exposure. The dose, the type and length of time of exposure will have varying effect.
A visit to the ophthalmologist is warranted if there are any symptoms of eye pain or decreased vision.
