Abstract


Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a condition where a person suffering from diabetes for more than 10 years and has problem in vision. Due to DR, blood vessels in retina gets damaged. Patient also suffers from a blurred vision, finds difficulty in seeing colors in some cases or even total loss of vision. Retinal surgeries can relieve the symptoms, but efficient way to tackle DR is controlling diabetes and managing early symptoms of DR, which can be done by having eyes checked at least once annually. DR is a leading cause of blindness. The manual process for studying the fundus images is a time consuming approach and needs expertise to do it. Thus to minimize the time and to detect it more accurately, the proposed system uses deep learning algorithms. Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) is used to train the model using images of fundus. These fundus images include data of five stages of DR. Satisfactory results were obtained using CNN.

Keywords: Deep learning, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), technology, digital image processing.
