ABSTRACT
Data mining refers to extracting knowledge from large amount of data. Real life data mining approaches are interesting because they often present a different set of problems for data miners. The process of designing a model helps to identify the different Cataract Diseases. A cataract can cause a decrease in visual function, which in turn can be classified as a visual disability. Thus, cataract can be defined in three ways. The first definition is an objective lens change. The second is a lens opacity that is associated with a defined level of visual acuity loss. The third relates to the functional consequences of lens opacification. This guideline focuses on the last definition. It deals with care of the patient with functional impairment due to cataract and improvement in function as a result of treatment for the condition. Taking into account the prevalence of cataract among men and women the study is aimed at finding out the characteristics that determine the presence of cataract and to track the maximum number of men and women suffering from cataract with 790 population using weka tool. In this paper the data classification is cataract patients data set is developed by collecting data from hospital repository consists of 790 instances with 11 different attributes. The instances in the Dataset are pertaining to the categories of Kerato meter reading (RE), Kerato meter reading (LE), Axil Length(RE), Axil Length(LE), Power(RE), Power(LE), Cataract Disease . WEKA tool is used to classify the data and the data is evaluated using 10-fold cross validation and the results are compared.
