Majority of the respondents (33.33%) were suffering from cataract in the age group of 61 to 70 years followed by 23.67 per cent respondents (28.26% rural and 28.67% urban) and 2.00 per cent respondents (2.67% rural and 1.33% urban) who were in the age group of 71 to 80 years and 81 to 90 years, respectively. Majority of the respondents (19.67%)suffering from diabetes were from age group of 61 to 70 years while 9.00 per cent respondents were in the age group of 71 to 80 years.
