Refractive surgery/laser vision correction

In this diagnostic, cross-sectional study, 6465 corneal tomographic images from 1385 patients were examined. Pentacam InceptionResNetV2 Screening System (PIRSS), a tomographic-based screening tool, was developed to screen potential patients for refractive surgery. On the validation data set, the model achieved an overall detection accuracy of 94.7%. On the independent test data set, the model achieved an overall detection accuracy of 95%, which is on par with a senior ophthalmologist who specializes in refractive surgery (92.8%).
