This paper is about different techniques how we can control our cursor on the computer system without touching the mouse (Hardware). This is possible through the iris of instead of mouse or keyboard. Research that is described in this paper has an aim to reduce the complexities and difficulties that are involved the detection and tracking of the iris for the persons to interact with the computer without touching the mouse or keyboard. The research paper defines operations performed on the images of high resolution of the subject’s (Human) eye to compute/calculate the eye movement/tracking and patterns of iris in left & right direction. The detection takes place according to the center of the eye (Origin of the eye). The calculated/computed data from the position of the iris can be used in the technique of application based processing. The Cursor Control Using Iris research has various applications in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) like mouse cursor control. In this paper, there is a discussion about eye tracking using eyeball mouse.
