The influence of carbon ions of 300 MeV/nucleon on the incidence of lenticular opacity has been studied on mice. The cataractogenic efficiency of low carbon ion doses (0.003 to 0.5 Gy) is higher than that of gamma-radiation. The threshold dose of carbon ions is 0.05 Gy. The RBE ratios vary from 30.4 to 11.1 as the period of the postirradiation observation increases from 20 to 50 weeks.
