Efficacy and Safety of AEYE-DS Software Device for Automated Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy From Digital Fundus Images
AEYE-DS is a software device developed to increase compliance with diabetic retinopathy screening by automatically detecting more-than-mild diabetic retinopathy from digital fundus images using AI-based software. This study has been designed to validate the safety and efficacy of the device at primary care and other point of care sites.
Arms and Interventions
|Experimental: AEYE Software Device|
An AI software device (AEYE-DS) to be used as a diagnostic tool to assist primary care clinicians in screening for diabetic retinopathy using digital funduscopic images. The device automatically detects more than mild diabetic retinopathy (mtmDR) in adults diagnosed with diabetes who have not been previously diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.
Device: AEYE Software Device
Eligible participants will undergo the following procedures: Photographic imaging of each eye using a funduscopy camera device. Images obtained will be sent to the AEYE-DS software for analysis. Additional photographic and OCT images will be obtained using a second funduscopy/OCT camera device. Images obtained will be sent to a professional reading center for analysis. All study subjects will have their pupils dilated using dilation drops.
Primary Outcome Measures
- Performance of the AEYE-DS software for the detection of more than mild diabetic retinopathy (mtmDR) on digital funduscopic images from patients with known diabetes. [1 day]
sensitivity and specificity

Uncorrectable vision loss (e.g., with the use of eyeglasses), blurred vision, or floaters.
Diagnosed with macular edema, severe non-proliferative retinopathy, proliferative retinopathy, radiation retinopathy, or retinal vein occlusion.
History of laser treatment of the retina or injections into either eye, or any history of retinal surgery.
Currently participating in another investigational eye study and actively receiving investigational product for DR or DME.
Participant has a condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would preclude participation in the study (e.g., unstable medical status including blood pressure or glycemic control, microphthalmia or previous enucleation).
Participant is contraindicated for imaging by fundus imaging systems used in the study:
Participant is hypersensitive to light
Participant recently underwent photodynamic therapy (PDT)
Participant is taking medication that causes photosensitivity
Participant has a history of angle-closure glaucoma or narrow anterior chamber angles
