Prof Dan Milea
Senior consultant, Department of Neuro-Ophthalmology
Singapore National Eye Centre 

Professor Dan MILEA is the Head of the Visual Neuroscience Group at the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) and a Senior Consultant in the Neuro-Ophthalmology Department of the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC).  He is Professor of Ophthalmology at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore, Professor of Ophthalmology at the Angers University, France and Honorary Professor at the Copenhagen University, Denmark.

He has completed his medical school at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, France, where he has also completed a fellowship in Neuro-Ophthalmology. In Singapore since 2012, he has created the Visual Neuroscience group at SERI, in addition to his mission as a clinical neuro-ophthalmologist. Among his various research interests he has a special focus on deep learning methods applied to Neuro-Ophthalmology. In this context, he has created a very large international study group entitled BONSAI (Brain and Optic Nerve Study with Artificial Intelligence), which has recently published its first results about papilledema detection in The New England Journal al of Medicine.

Artificial Intelligence for Detection of Brain Conditions via Imaging the Retina

Artificial intelligence, and in particular deep-learning methods are a rapidly evolving field in medicine. In Neuro-ophthalmology, artificial intelligence-based analysis has shown potential ability to effectively detect optic nerve head abnormalities on standard, affordable retinal photographs, leading to detection of potentially life- or vision-treating cerebral conditions. This ability may be implemented, if further validated in real-life situations, for patients’ triaging in non-ophthalmic set-ups. Our ongoing prospective studies, including large clinical datasets aim to establish if such systems may become a safe, effective, attractive solution that can be implemented in various clinics, to improve healthcare outcomes in non-ophthalmic settings.
