Paper Abstract

Low contrast and non-uniform illumination of infrared (IR) meibography images make the detection of meibomian glands challengeable. An improved Mask dodging algorithm is proposed. To overcome the shortage of low contrast using traditional Mask dodging method, a scale factor is used to enhance the image after subtracting background image from an original one. Meibomian glands are detected and the ratio of the meibomian gland area to the measurement area is calculated. The results show that the improved Mask algorithm has ideal dodging effect, which can eliminate non-uniform illumination and improve contrast of meibography images effectively.
