SYNTHESIZING FACE IMAGES BY IRIS REPLACEMENT: STRABISMUS SIMULATION

Xiaoyi Jiang, Swenja Rothaus, Kai Rothaus, Daniel Mojon

Abstract

In this paper we consider a class of face image processing operations, in which we change the position of the iris. In particular, we present a novel technique for synthesizing strabismic face images from a normal frontal face image. This image synthesis is needed for conducting studies in psychosocial and vocational implications of strabismus and strabismus surgery and we are not aware of any previous work for this purpose. The experimental results demonstrate the potential of our approach. The algorithm presented in this paper provides the basis for two related tasks of correction of strabismic face images and gaze direction.
