Talking Optics sits down with Pearse Keane, a leading figure in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in eye care and a consultant ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital.

The rate of evolution of AI in eyecare has increased significantly in recent years and the technology is being rolled out in screening programmes around the world. The episode explores how AI is currently used, how it may be applied in the future and how the eye care sector needs to prepare.

But AI's amazing power also raises questions in clinical decision making - a topic that we also explore with Pearse
