Automatic evaluation of retinal vessels acts a significant part in diagnosis of several ocular and systemic diseases. Eye diseases must be diagnosed early to avoid severe infection and vision loss. The method of segmentation and classification of the retinal blood vessel identification is most difficult tasks in computerized fundus imaging now a days. To solve this problem in this paper, to locate retinal vessel in the retinal vessel, Adaptive Regularized Kernel Based Fuzzy Clustering Means (ARKFCM) algorithm-based segmentation is used. For retinal vessel prediction purpose in this paper a PIGEON optimization-based learning rate modified Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) algorithm is introduced. Additionally, to improve the proposed classification performance input image is transformed with the aid of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). The DWT applied Low Low (LL) image and segmented images are cascaded. The cascade images are used for training and testing. The proposed system has validated with the help of DRIVE and STARE publically available datasets. They are studied by applying a Convolutional Neural Network, an instantly trained neural network for predicting retinal vessel. In the end, the system is checked for system efficiency using the results of modeling based on MATLAB. The scheme guarantees an accuracy of 92.77% on DRIVE dataset and 98.85% on STARE dataset with a minimum average classification error of 2.57%. Further, we recommended to physician for implement the real time clinical application; this scheme is highly beneficial for doctors for identifying retinal blood vessels
