    Young Son et al. aimed to develop and validate an automated platform for diagnosing and grading cataracts using slit-lamp and retroillumination lens photographs. They found that their deep learning–based AI platform was able to accurately and precisely detect and grade nuclear opalescence, nuclear color, cortical opacity, and posterior subcapsular opacity.
