A novel method for person identification based on the fusion of iris and periocular biometrics has been proposed in this paper. The challenges for image acquisition for Near-Infrared or Visual Wavelength lights under constrained and unconstrained environments have been considered here. The proposed system is divided into image preprocessing data augmentation followed by feature learning for classification components. In image preprocessing an annular iris, the portion is segmented out from an eyeball image and then transformed into a fixed-sized image region. The parameters of iris localization have been used to extract the local periocular region. Due to different imaging environments, the images suffer from various noise artifacts which create data insufficiency and complicate the recognition task. To overcome this situation, a novel method for data augmentation technique has been introduced here. For features extraction and classification tasks well-known, VGG16, ResNet50, and Inception-v3 CNN architectures have been employed. The performance due to iris and periocular are fused together to increase the performance of the recognition system. The extensive experimental results have been demonstrated in four benchmark iris databases namely: MMU1, UPOL, CASIA-Iris-distance, and UBIRIS.v2. The comparison with the state-of-the-art methods with respect to these databases shows the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed approach.

A grouping of three closely linked conditions: iris nevus (or Cogan-Reese) syndrome, Chandler Syndrome, and essential (progressive) iris atrophy. The most common features of this syndrome are the movement of endothelial cells off the cornea onto the iris leading to corneal swelling, distortion of the iris, and variable degrees of distortion of the pupil. The abnormal cell movement plugs fluid outflow channels of the eye causing GLAUCOMA.
Tumors of the iris characterized by increased pigmentation of melanocytes. Iris nevi are composed of proliferated melanocytes and are associated with neurofibromatosis and malignant melanoma of the choroid and ciliary body. Malignant melanoma of the iris often originates from preexisting nevi.
Inflammation of the anterior uvea comprising the iris, angle structures, and the ciliary body. Manifestations of this disorder include ciliary injection, exudation into the anterior chamber, iris changes, and adhesions between the iris and lens (posterior synechiae). Intraocular pressure may be increased or reduced.
Interference with the FREEDOM or PERSONAL AUTONOMY of another person, with justifications referring to the promotion of the person's good or the prevention of harm to the person. (from Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, 1995); more generally, not allowing a person to make decisions on his or her own behalf.
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.
