Hockey goalkeeper Baljit Singh, who is being treated in the USA for his injured eye, is progressing well and will go through another operation next week.

According to a top official of the Sports Authority of India (SAI), the two operations conducted on Baljit went off successfully and he is recovering nicely. “The third operation will be done around September 8 as the doctors are trying to get back his normal eye pressure,” the SAI official said.

“Baljit’s retina has recovered and now he is able to differentiate between colours. This is a big improvement (from the time he left India),” the official added.

The Sports Ministry is bearing all the expenses incurred on the goalkeeper’s treatment in the USA.
