We aimed to determine the value of retinal vascular parameters (RVPs) as biomarkers for incidence and progression of DR from 4,461 patients with Type 2 diabetes.Method: We used VAMPIRE 3.1 software to measure central retinal artery and vein equivalent, their ratio (artery and vein ratio, AVR), arteriolar and venular tortuosity (TortA, TortV), and fractal dimension (Da, Dv) in diabetes retinal screening photographs (DRS) in GoDARTS. Cox's proportional hazards were used to model the impact
