"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.
