Artificial Intelligence May Be Used to Detect Diabetic Retinopathy

Final thoughts

With the assisted help of a medical physician, this technology is only becoming more accurate. Even though “artificial intelligence may one day help track your eye health if you have diabetes, the recommendations to follow now for better eye health remain the same” (Vanessa Caceres). With that knowledge, doctors and other physicians agree that a diabetic patient should “get a dilated eye exam once or twice a year. Only about 60 percent of patients with diabetes in the U.S. get this exam regularly” ( Aiello). Technology is still several years away from replacing physicians as primary care facilitators in the medical community. However, advancements are being made much faster than individuals realize. Soon enough, the technology of a concept will catch up with the concept itself.
