Diabetic retinopathy is the major reason for loss of eyesight in recent years. Studies are going on for the earlier detection of diabetic retinopathy symptoms. One of the symptoms of DR is retinal hemorrhage caused due to the leakage of blood vessels. Earlier identification of retinal hemorrhages ensures the right clinical attention for prolonged eyesight in diabetic patients. Different automated screening systems have been developed for the non-invasive detection of DR symptoms. In this paper an attempt is been made to review the existing algorithms developed for automated hemorrhage detection.
