Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new automatic glaucoma diagnostics method which enables to determine the probability of glaucoma occurrence in a studied eye is described. This method is based on the computer image analysis of two-dimensional images of the blind spot of the human eye retina and on the successive statistical evaluation of the obtained data. First, the characteristic symptoms of glaucoma are shortly described. Next, a suitable numerical parameter of the retina blind spot is defined. The computer image analysis method of the automatic determination of the mentioned parameter is described and it is applied to a set of normal healthy eye images and to a set of glaucomatous eye images. The probability of glaucoma occurrence for each value of the introduced parameter is suitably defined and computed by virtue of the statistical evaluation of the obtained results.
