    Several close call events posted on NRC events page today. Seems like Comanche peak has had a lot of close calls lately. Even though its a newer design. If fukushima doesn't get us one of these in the US very may well. The insanty continues.

    "EFFECTS OF RADIATION ON THE EYES"

    "The components of the posterior intraocular zone include the retina, choroid and optic disc. They are relatively resistant to doses up to 50 Gy, at which point retinal swelling that is usually temporary can occur. Most of the damage is chronic in nature, with the mechanism of damage relating more to damage of the blood vessels in the eye. Radiation damage to the vessels can occlude or obliterate them, resulting in ischemia (decreased blood flow) to the posterior intraocular components. Retinal damage can result in vision loss, and visualization of neovascularization (formation of new blood vessels) and exudates can be seen."
