Neovascular glaucoma (NVG) is a human eye disease due to diabetes that leads to permanent vision loss. Early detection and treatment of it prevent further vision loss. Hence the development of an automated system is more essential to help the ophthalmologist in detecting NVG at an earlier stage. In this paper, a novel approach is used for detection of Neovascular glaucoma using fractal geometry concepts. Fractal geometry is a branch of mathematics. It is useful in computing fractal features of irregular, asymmetrical, and complex natural objects. In this work, fractal feature-based Neovascular glaucoma detection from fundus images has been proposed. It utilizes the image adjustment enhancement technique as a preprocessing method to improve the accuracy of NVG detection and the box-counting technique of Fractal geometry to estimate the fractal dimension. The proposed system is tested over MESSIDOR and KMC datasets and yields an average accuracy of 98%.
