Executive Summary

The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP), with financial support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, addresses radiation protection principles with respect to the lens of the eye, summarizes the current understanding of eye biology and lens effects (including ionizing radiation effects), reviews and evaluates the current epidemiology related to ionizing radiation and cataracts, assesses exposed populations with the potential for significant radiation exposures to the lens, and makes conclusions and recommendations. Commentary No. 26, Guidance on Radiation Dose Limits for the Lens of the Eye, takes into account the most current information regarding the epidemiologic and mechanistic understanding of the development of cataracts and specifically addresses four core questions.
