This article examines a current area of research in the field of ophthalmology the use of deep learning methods for automated analysis of retinal structures. This work explores the use of deep learning methods such as EfficientNet and DenseNet for the automated analysis of retinal structures in ophthalmology. EfficientNet, originally proposed to balance between accuracy and computational efficiency, and DenseNet, based on dense connections between layers, are considered as tools for identifying and classifying retina features. Automated analysis includes identifying pathologies, assessing the degree of their development and, possibly, diagnosing various eye diseases. Experiments are performed on a dataset containing a variety of images of retinal structures. Results are evaluated using metrics of accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity. It is expected that the proposed deep learning methods can significantly improve the automated analysis of retinal images, which is important for the diagnosis and monitoring of eye diseases. As a result, the article highlights the significance and promise of using deep learning methods in ophthalmology for automated analysis of retinal structures. These methods help improve the early diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of eye diseases, which can ultimately lead to improved healthcare quality and improved patient lives.
