Assessment of Dose to the Lens of the Eye

Dose to the lens of the eye has received increased attention in recent years with ICRP’s new dose limits to the lens of the eye being adopted in the International and European Basic Safety Standards. In 2017, IRPA released Guidance on Implementation of Eye Dose Monitoring and Eye Protection of Workers. Practical dosimetry methods for measuring dose to the lens of the eye are emerging, but further work is required in this area and in establishing an appropriate regulatory framework and good practice.
