Cataract is one of the common problems among the humans related to eye. Clouding of lens termed as cataract leads to blindness. Various causes of cataract are identified by the ophthalmologist. Data mining has become popular in the past few years because of information extracted from the dataset using algorithm and computational capability. In this paper, cataract patients’ historical data is used to build the predictive model. C5.0 algorithm is one of the decision tree algorithms used for predictive modeling. Present study uses C5.0 method to predict cataract status on various parameters. Data used in this research paper is the primary data collected from the Raigad Maharashtra, India.
