Artificial intelligence in ophthalmology

Edited by: Prof Jianhua Wang

In the ophthalmology, it has been demonstrated that deep learning plays a role in advancing our knowledge and diagnosis of eye diseases. Artificaial interligence models appear to provide solutions to tackle the durden in disease screening, early diagnosis and individualized comprehensive management of these sight-threatening diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. This thematic series focuses on the recent applications of artificial intelligence in ophthalmology. It aims to publish review articles and original research of the latest discovery in the field. 

This series was published in Eye and Vision.
