Poor Anderson Cooper, who thought you could get sunburn on your eyeballs? Apparently you can, and Anderson  found out the hard way by losing his sight for 36 hours.

Anderson Cooper was reporting for 60 minutes and ventured out on a boat into the  ocean with overcast skies for a couple of hours with no sunglasses, and apparently the glare of what little sun was out  caused his eyes to become burned.

Thankfully he is fine, and is able to see, but learned a very valuable lesson on how powerful the sun can be. We are always mindful of our skin getting burned, but be warned your eyes are very vulnerable as well.
