For an Iris Analysis Report, the following are required:
A picture of your eyes, both Left eye, and Right eye
Using a Smartphone:
- The regular forward camera on the phone is recommended for this. Selfie pictures are not advised, in the interest of picture quality
- However, if the option of getting a photo taken by a second person is difficult, a “selfie” photo can be resorted to.
Note: The user may also compare the picture quality between the regular and selfie option if needed. Alternatively, a DSLR camera can be used to take the photo.
Execution steps for Mobile Phone
- The Zoom to be set to at least 2xs (or even a Macro setting, if possible, if the camera software permits).
- The images need to be as large as possible, to capture a clear, distortion-free view of the eye.
- It is strongly recommended that the camera be operated by a second person as the lens must be placed as close to the eye as possible (about a couple of inches).
- Alternatively, a tripod can be set up, to hold the mobile phone (smartphone) in place.
- The eyes should be kept wide open by using the fingers, and the user is required to look straight into the camera lens while the photo is being taken.
- The flash settings (ON/ OFF) are required to be tested and set suitably.
- To avoid unwanted light reflection, the user should avoid positioning himself/herself near any windows, as light reflection would adversely impact iris markings.
- When using flash, a white spot will appear on the picture and hide parts of the iris. Make sure you take a couple of pictures whose white spot is located somewhere else in the eye and send them all to me.
- Lastly, the right / left eyes should be properly labelled with the words “LEFT” and “RIGHT” before dispatching the photos to me.
