We develop a fully automated method for the segmentation of optic disc in retinal fundus images using basis-spline-based active contour. The segmentation is achieved by performing scaling, translation, and rotation of the active contour, thereby giving rise to five free parameters. The energy of the active contour is defined by the local contrast a...

We present a novel and fully automated fundus image processing technique for glaucoma prescreening based on the rim-to-disc ratio (RDR). The technique accurately segments the optic disc and optic cup and then computes the RDR based on which it is possible to differentiate a normal fundus from a glaucomatous one. The technique performs a further cat...

Ocular parasitology is the study of parasites that infect humans and result in ocular complications. Complications occur either due to mechanical, immunologic, or allergic reactions [1]. Because of protean manifestations and lack of clinical suspicion, the diagnosis is often missed. Prior to making a final diagnosis, ophthalmologists have to get di...
