Paper Abstract

We propose a method that allows an inexperienced observer, through the examination of the digital fundus image of a retina on a computer screen, to simply determine the presence of a cataract and the necessity to refer the patient for further evaluation. To do so, fundus photos obtained with a non-mydriatic camera were presented to an inexperienced observer that was briefly instructed on fundus imaging, nature of cataracts and their probable effect on the image of the retina and the use of a computer program presenting fundus image pairs. Preliminary results of pair testing indicate the method is very effective.
