Automatic clinical diagnosis of retinal diseases has emerged as a promising approach to facilitate discovery in areas with limited access to specialists. We propose a novel visual-assisted diagnosis hybrid model based on the support vector machine (SVM) and deep neural networks (DNNs). The model incorporates complementary strengths of DNNs and SVM. Furthermore, we present a new clinical retina label collection for ophthalmology incorporating 32 retina diseases classes. Using EyeNet, our model achieves 89.73% diagnosis accuracy and the model performance is comparable to the professional ophthalmologists.
