TV show/movie name, 80's sci fi.

trying to remember a TV show of the mid 80's, pretty sure it had a two part TV pilot movie then maybe a short run series after that but not sure?

it was about an astronaut who was hit by solar radiation while looking trough some sort of viewer.
it gave him special powers and abilities depending on what color his eyes are, his eyes would turn blue/yellow/red, but if they were red he could die at any moment, he had a woman scientist as a helper.

i thought it was something like Omega man, but that just brings up the Charlton Heston film.

Yes, that looks like it.

being over 30 years ago since i last seen it, memory distorts a little.
I seem to remeber his eyes changed and was an astronaut so though it could be. Full film here but not great quality.

well, after watching it, that's one that should have remained as a memory.
no wonder it was never picked up for a series.
