This talk will (a) introduce iris recognition as a means of verifying a person’s identity, (b) outline how contact lenses affect the accuracy of iris recognition, and (c) discuss results of algorithms developed to automatically detect whether or not the eye in an iris image is wearing a contact lens. We consider clear, prescription contact lenses, as well as “cosmetic” or “textured” lenses. Automatic detection of the presence of textured lenses is especially important because they can be used to "spoof" identity verification.
