In recent days iris is as one of the useful traits for authentication using biometric recognition. Almost all publicly available iris image databases contain data correspondent to heavy imaging constraints and suitable to evaluate by various algorithms (CASIA Iris Image Database [1]; Proença et al. in IEEE Trans Pattern Anal Mach Intell 32(8):1529–1535, 2010 [2]). This paper is first to prepare our own IRIS IMAGE DATABASE and make the availability of it to the new researchers. We have thus proposed our own database named as CVPR_IRIS DATABASE with not heavy imaging constraints. This set up contains Iris Image Capture IR Sensitive CCD camera by which eye images are captured in the visible lighting conditions with IRLED source at a distance. Clear images from this database are separated from noisy images by quality assessment technique. Thus proposed CVPR_IRIS DATABASE containing total 485 eye images of 49 individuals is made available for researchers concerned with the implementation of algorithms based on research in iris recognition. Second using proposed database we have proved good accuracy using 2D Discrete Wavelet Transform.
