The price of journalism!



Anderson Cooper went temporarily blind last week while on assignment in Portugal, the CNN host explained on his daytime talk show Tuesday.

"I am in this beautiful coastal area shooting this story for 60 Minutes involving the water," Cooper says. "I don't want to go into details [on] what the story was, but I am on the water for two hours shooting this story and it's an overcast day... I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire, my eyeballs, and I think, 'Oh, maybe I have sand in my eyes or something.' I douse my eyes with water. Anyway, it turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours."



Cooper tweeted out a photo wearing an eye patch over one eye, joking, "That's my new Match.com profile picture by the way. I think that's going to really work for me."
