Jaipur hosted the world's only eye hospital functioning in an aircraft at the Sanganer airport.
The plane is a DC 10 aircraft well equipped with latest machines to run a mini eye clinic.
It also has a laser treatment centre, operation theatre, nursing and biomedical engineering training areas along with sitting capacity of 48 people at a time.
The motive behind introducing the flying eye hospital is to cure blind people and to exchange knowledge from international experts as it flies to other destinations.
"The main concept behind this is teaching. We wish to engage with the surgeons here in order to teach them the skills. In this process, we would like learn a lot from them too," said Robert Walters, Chairman of Trustees (United Kingdom), ORBIS.
The eye hospital would stay at the airport till October 3 and would operate around five eye patients per day. By Lokendra Singh
