Paper Abstract

Based on the presented two-layer eye iris model, the iris diffuse reflectance has been calculated by Monte Carlo technique in the spectral range 400-800 nm. The diffuse reflectance spectra have been recalculated in L*a*b* color coordinate system. Obtained results demonstrated that the iris color coordinates (hue and chroma) can be used for estimation of melanin content in the range of small melanin concentrations, i.e. for estimation of melanin content in blue and green eyes.
