Biometric eye scan. Computer artwork of a human eye overlaid with binary numbers and computer graphics symbolising eye scanning. The iris and retina in the eye contain unique patterns that can be used to determine the identity of an individual. When an eye is scanned, a computer will divide the scan into areas that are then compared to information already stored in a database. The process of automated identification of people using unique physiological traits is known as biometric identification. Other forms of biometrics includes fingerprints.
