Abstract: Glaucoma has arisen as the one of the main sources of visual impairment. A typical technique for diagnosing glaucoma is through assessment optic nerve head by an experienced ophthalmologist. This methodology is arduous and burns-through a lot of time. Despite the fact that the analysis of this infection has not yet been discovered, the period of primary identification can preserve from the glaucoma. Subsequently, customary glaucoma screening is basic and suggested. The issue can be settled by applying machine learning techniques for glaucoma detection. We present an automated glaucoma screening framework using a pre-trained Alexnet model with SVM classifier to enhance the classification accuracy . In this study, we used three publicly available dataset as HRF, Origa and Drishti_GS1 dataset. The proposed model achieved the image classification accuracy of 91.21%. This study showed that using pre-trained CNN with SVM for glaucoma detection showed greater accuracy in automatic image classification than just CNN or SVM.
