记者昨从湖北省卫生厅获悉,我省于近日启动“贫困白内障患者复明工程”,近万名患者可从中受益。  
今年,我国启动“百万贫困白内障患者复明工程”,计划利用3年时间,为100万名贫困白内障患者实施复明手术,湖北省今年的任务是9475例,每位患者将享受800元的费用减免。全省三级医院和大部分具备条件的二级医院都将成为项目医院。
昨日,中南医院开始接受手术报名,凡我省农业户口以及城镇下岗职工、低保、残疾人士等都可持相关证明到该院登记手术。
该院眼科主任蔡小军介绍,我国约有盲人1240多万,因白内障致盲人数约为699万,这其中又有15%的患者属于贫困阶层,无钱做手术。

Partial translation: "Hubei Province will soon institute a program, Cataract Vision Restoration for the Poor, and about 1 million patients will benefit. This is a 3-year program and for the current year, 9,475 patients will enjoy a $800 (about USD 100) discount for the surgery... It is estimated that there are 12.4 million blind in China. Of them, 6.99 million are cataract cases and 15% cannot afford to pay for the surgery [hence this program]."

Certainly a step in the right direction.
