The induction of cataracts or formation of lens opacity in the human eye has often been incriminated as a possible hazard of human exposure to personal communication radiation and microwave radiation in general. In the case of cell phones, some concerns have been expressed when the user holds the cell-phone handset, or the microwave radiating device, directly in front of the face, exposing the eye to a straight-on incidence of the cell-phone radiation.
