The cause of blindness in 1006 consecutive legally blind patients were analyzed in a large urban multidisciplinary medical center.

The periodic collection of statistics on the relative frequency of the causes of blindness under Indian conditions is strongly suggested so that priorities can be redefined and improvements in health care may be suggested.
