Determining diabetes using iris recognition system

Abstract

Iridology is a science which correlates the apparitions of iris to tissue weaknesses in the body. It merely reveals weaknesses, inflammation, or toxicity in organs or tissues. It also indicates weakness long before the symptoms appear. In this paper, support vector machine-based iris recognition system utilizing iridology has been used to determine diabetes. Features from eye image database of 40 people having healthy eye (normal) and having affected eye (diabetes) have been extracted by 2-D wavelet tree. The overall accuracy is obtained to be 87.50 % which reasonably demonstrates the effectiveness of the system.
