© 2018 IEEE. Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a disease which requires immediate precautionary measures to prevent blindness in the infants, and this condition is prevalent in premature babies in all the underdeveloped, developing, and in the developed countries as well. This paper proposes a tool by which the stage and zones of Retinopathy of Prematurity in infants can be diagnosed easily. This tool takes the input from the Retcam and detects the stage, zone, and gives a rating of 1 to 9 for classifying the severity of the disease in the infants. This is achieved by extracting the optic disc, marking the ridge, and the distance of the optic nerve. This tool can be easily used by nurses and paramedics, unlike the existing technologies which require the guidance of a specialist to come to a conclusion.
