Automatic Detection Of Age Related Macular Degeneration Using Retinal Colour Images

Poonam Bhosale, Pradnya Kulkarni, Sarika Bobde

Abstract


Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a common eye condition and a leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 and older. It causes damage to the macula, a small spot near the center of the retina and the part of the eye needed for sharp and central vision. AMD is the fourth leading cause of blindness around the world. If it is not detected in early stages it causes loss of eye sight. There are two types of AMDS dry and wet AMDS. The people with macular degeneration are mostly affected by dry AMD. Early symptoms of AMD are formation of drusen and yellow pigmentation. Digital colour retinal fundus images are widely used to detect AMD.We are using STARE database which contains colour fundus image data of 50 healthy persons.This automated AMD detection system can be used for mass fundus image screening.
