Abstract:
There are various eye diseases in the patients suffering from the diabetes which includes Diabetic retinopathy, Glaucoma, Hypertension etc. These all are the most common sight threatening eye diseases due to the changes in the blood vessel structure. The proposed method using supervised methods concluded that the segmentation of the retinal blood vessels can be performed accurately using neural networks training. It uses features which includes gray level features, moment invariant based features, Gabor filtering, intensity feature, vesselness feature for feature vector computation. Then the feature vector is calculated using only the prominent features.
