The Diabetic Retinopathy is the diabetes-mellitus to human vision that is the main cause of vision loss. The early stage detection of diabetic retinopathy is can play eminent role in the diabetes treatment. The fundus of retinal image is utilized to recognize the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy. Moreover, the above phenomena led us to propose this paper; here we propose segment based learning approach for identification of diabetic retinopathy. The segment based image level is required to obtain the identification of diabetic retinopathy images, the classifiers and features are equally learned from the data. Then, we adapt pre-trained CNN as the fine tune to achieve the segment level estimation of diabetic retinopathy. For identification of diabetic retinopathy, we achieve accuracy 96.97 and 98.46% at 20 and 30% and also achieve AUC (Area under Curve) 97.51 and 98.50 at 20 and 30% on the Kaggle dataset. Our proposed model outperforms much better than other models.
