Keywords:ChatGPT, Diabetic Retinopathy, Ophthalmic Care, Diabetes, Counseling Patients.
Diabetic retinopathy is a sight-threatening complication of diabetes. In areas with limited ophthalmic services, AI-powered Chat GPT can be utilized to offer counseling and guidance to patients. This article examines the potential of Chat GPT in improving access to eye care in underserved regions. While it cannot replace medical evaluation, Chat GPT can provide educational information and basic counseling to raise awareness and guide patients. Benefits include consistent information delivery and easy accessibility, but limitations, such as the inability to perform physical examinations or provide accurate diagnoses, must be acknowledged. Ethical concerns also need consideration. Further research is necessary to assess Chat GPT's capabilities, but it holds promise for enhancing healthcare delivery. However, integration into healthcare systems should follow appropriate guidelines and involve collaboration with healthcare professionals to ensure ethical and responsible implementation. Conclusion: The use of AI-powered ChatGPT for counseling DR patients in regions with limited ophthalmic care holds promise as a supplementary tool for improved health education and communication in healthcare. While not a substitute for medical expertise, it can enhance healthcare delivery. Further research is required to refine the technology, address limitations, and tackle ethical concerns.
