As the prevalence of diabetes increases, millions of people need to be screened for diabetic retinopathy (DR). Remarkable advances in technology have made it possible to use artificial intelligence to screen DR from retinal images with high accuracy and reliability, resulting in reducing human labor by processing large amounts of data in a shorter time. We developed a fully automated classification algorithm to diagnose DR and identify referable status using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images with convolutional neural network (CNN) model and verified its feasibility by comparing its performance with that of conventional machine learning model.

Eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) have been shown to improve in the leakage index and microaneurysm (MA) count after intravitreal aflibercept (IAI) treatment. The authors investigated these changes via automatic segmentation on ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (UWFA). Forty subjects with PDR were randomized to receive either 2 mg IAI every 4 weeks (Arm 1) or every 12 weeks (Arm 2) through Year 1. Read More

Purpose: To examine the usefulness of red channel fundus imaging to detect the ischemic status in eyes with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).Methods: Ultra-widefield (UWF) fundus images were obtained from 42 eyes with CRVO. Twenty-one eyes were ischemic, and 21 eyes were non-ischemic. Read More

Purpose: Widefield imaging can detect signs of retinal pathology extending beyond the posterior pole and is currently moving to the forefront of posterior segment imaging. We report a novel, smartphone-based, telemedicine-enabled, mydriatic, widefield retinal imaging device with autofocus and autocapture capabilities to be used by non-specialist operators.Methods: The Remidio Vistaro uses an annular illumination design without cross-polarizers to eliminate Purkinje reflexes.

A female patient with totally white hair and pink skin had gradual visual loss to hand motion in the right eye within one year. Upon her visit to the Department of Ophthalmology, she was found to have a totally white cataract and a family history of intermarriage, and was finally diagnosed with oculocutaneous albinism and complicated cataract in the right eye. The best corrected visual acuity of her right eye increased to 0. Read More
