Computer vision using deep learning architecture is broadly used in auto-recognition. In the research, the deep learning model which is trained by categorized single-eye images is applied to achieve the good performance of the model in blepharoptosis auto-diagnosis.


This auto-diagnosis system of blepharoptosis using machine learning architecture will assist in telemedicine, such as early screening of childhood ptosis for prompt referral and treatment. People could use this software via mobile devices to get a primitive diagnosis before they reach the physicians. Furthermore, in primary health care, where there is no oculoplastic surgeon, the software could assist primary care physicians or general ophthalmologists, in identifying the need for a referral.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plastic surgical operation on the nose, either reconstructive, restorative, or cosmetic. (Dorland, 28th ed)

The branch of surgery concerned with restoration, reconstruction, or improvement of defective, damaged, or missing structures.

Plastic surgery of the eyelid. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.

Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
