LOS AN­GE­LES — An­der­son Cooper says a re­port­ing as­sign­ment turned into a tem­po­rary blind­ness scare. On his talk show Tues­day, Cooper said he was in Por­tu­gal last week work­ing on a story for “60 Min­utes” and spent two hours on the water. The news­man says later, he devel­oped a burn­ing sen­sa­tion in his eyes and lost sight for 36 hours.

Dr. Nancy Sny­der­man, chief med­i­cal cor­re­spon­dent for NBC News, ex­plained to Cooper he had suf­fered a retina burn. Sny­der­man cau­tioned that “ev­ery­body needs sun­glasses.”
