(IANS) The Delhi government will set up an ultra-modern eye hospital to prevent cases of blindness, a minister said Thursday.

 

There are around 1.85 lakh blind people in Delhi, of whom 1,14,250 suffer from cataract.

 

"Of the 90,000 eye patients who are able to get operated, 50 percent come from outside Delhi. It is a big challenge for health planners," said Health Minister A.K. Walia.

 

The government already runs two eye hospitals in the city -- Guru Nanak Eye Centre and Attar Sen Jain Eye and General Hospital.
