Step #1 Send pictures of your Iris (both left and right in JPEG form)
How to Take Adequate Pictures
- Need at least a 5.5 pixel camera (the higher the number, the better)
- Take the picture about a foot away from the face so that not only the eye is in the picture, but some of the face as well. Most people make the mistake of getting too close
- Most cameras have a setting with a flower on it – it is made for close ups. Check your camera’s instruction manual to find the setting for close up pictures.
- It’s important to take the picture away from any outside light, glare from light coming in the windows or artificial light from lamps or overhead lights. It’s best to take the picture in a hallway.
- Use a flash. If you have very light blue eyes, sometimes the flash cannot be used.
- Pictures need to be clear and light.
- No cropping or altering pictures
- Typical pixel size is 1500 x 1500 or higher
- The person should be looking straight ahead for the Iris picture.
- If the top of the eye and the bottom of the eye do not show, then spread the eyelids open so they do.
- Then to take pictures of the Sclera (the veins in the white part of the eye) Take 4 for each eye. One looking up while holding lower lid down, another looking down holding upper lid up, one looking towards the nose and the last looking towards your ear. Getting as much of the sclera as possible.
- Repeat for the other eye.
- Save picture with your name and as left or right eye. Example: AngiesLeftEye, AngiesLeftUp, AngiesLeftDown, AngiesLeftNose, AngiesLeftEar. With no empty spaces between words.
- Save as a jpeg, and email to MarysHerbs@aol.com as an attachment.
Example of the clarity needed in both the Iris and Sclera pictures…. Please note sometimes the flash washes out the blood vessels in the sclera pictures and a pen light may have to be used as the light source.
