Cataract examination was done by anamneses and shadow test. Results of study showed that there is no health impact was found in general, including cancer incidence caused by radiation among community members who were participated in the study and there is no correlation with their age. Incidence of cataract as a marker of high radiation exposure was found in very low cases.
