Diabetic retinopathy is major eye complications produced by the diabetes mellitus, which causes other problems such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetic nephropathy and diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic retinopathy consequences in visual conflicts and can lead to permanent blindness. Therefore, a regular diabetic retinopathy screening is essential for early treatment, along with an effective risk factor management to overcome the diabetic complications and reduce morbidity and mortality influence. In this paper we perform the digital image processing techniques to extract the retinal blood vessels. This algorithm is tested on STARE database.
