Retinal diseases are causing alterations ofthe visual perception leading sometimes to blindness. For this reason, early detection and diagnosis of retinal pathologies is very important. Using digital image processingtechniques, retinal images may be analyzed quickly and computer-assisted diagnosis systems may be developed in order to help the ophthalmologists to make a diagnosis.In this paper we described shortly two computer-assisted systems for the detection of retinal landmarks (optic disc and vasculature) together with a brief introduction to the human visual system and to some alterations of the visual perception caused by retinal diseases.
