Abstract: Automated diagnosis of glaucoma disease is focused on the analysis of the retinal images to localize, perceive and evaluate the optic disc. Clinical decision support system (CDSS) is used for glaucoma classification in human eyes. This process depends mainly on the feature type that can be morphological or non-morphological. It is originated in the retinal image analysis technique that used color feature, texture features, extract structure, or contextual. This work proposes an empirical study on a narrative automated glaucoma diagnosis classification system based on both Grid Color Moment method as a feature vector to extract the color features (non-morphological) and neural network classifier. Consequently, these features are fed to the back propagation neural network (BPNN) classifier for automated diagnosis. The proposed system was tested using an open RIM-ONE database with accurate gold standards of the optic nerve head. This work classifies both normal and abnormal defected retina with glaucoma images. The experimental results achieved an accuracy of 87.47%. Thus, the proposed system can detect the early glaucoma stage with good accuracy.
