This work studies retinal image registration in the context of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) standard. The ETDRS imaging protocol specifies seven fields of each retina and presents three major challenges for the image registration task. First, small overlaps between adjacent fields lead to(More)
PURPOSE This study analyzed the accuracy of the Inoveon Diabetic Retinopathy (DR-3DT) system (Inoveon Corp., Oklahoma City, OK), a scalable evaluation method for the management of diabetic retinopathy using high-quality digital retinal imaging. DESIGN An independent, masked, cross-sectional, clinical validation study. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred ninety(More)
AIMS To evaluate the performance of the RETeval device, a handheld instrument using flicker electroretinography (ERG) and pupillography on undilated subjects with diabetes, to detect vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy (VTDR). METHODS Performance was measured using a cross-sectional, single armed, non-interventional, multi-site study with Early(More)
We study 3-D retinal curvature estimation from multiple images that provides the fundamental geometry of the human retina and could be used for 3-D retina visualization and disease diagnosis purposes. An affine camera model is used for 3-D reconstruction due to its simplicity, linearity, and robustness. A major challenge is that a series of optics is(More)
PURPOSE The blepharogram technique is used to study the effect of a drug on blinking. The authors show that ocular instillation of phenylephrine, a stimulant of Müller muscle of the eyelid, accelerates the up phase of the blink. METHODS Motion of a tiny search coil glued to the eyelid moving in a weak magnetic field modifies an induced alternating current(More)
The types and locations of retinal tears associated with 268 pseudophakic retinal detachments were studied as a function of the time at which they occurred following cataract surgery. Retinal detachments occurring more than two years following cataract extraction were significantly more likely to have their most posterior retinal break located at the(More)
