Personal data protection with smart cards using eye-ground image recognition technique
Diabetes-induced pathologies are among the major causes, worldwide, of poor sight and blindness and are nowadays the least identifiable and treatable diseases. The resultant severe pathological changes entail persistent loss of visuality functions in patients over 50 [1, 2, 3, 4]. In recent years, such pathologies tend to become “younger”. Actually, early manifestations of diabetes-triggered eye-ground pathological changes are ophthalmoscopied even at the age of 12 to 20 years . It is noteworthy that a significant rise of morbidity rate is observed among the able-bodied categories of the population, inasmuch as the longevity of older people has increased, thereby increasing their share in the overall population . In the USA, eye-ground pathologies hold the second place, after diabetes, among the causes of blindness. In Ukraine, the situation, as to the extent of diabetes-induced eye-ground pathologies, is worsening all the time . For instance, for the last 20 years, the annual quantity of the first-revealed sight-disabled patients suffering from such pathology has increased 2.5 times .
