In this paper, we propose a novel approach for eye localization from human face image using GA based on PCA. As the genetic algorithm is computationally intensive, the searching space is reduced and limited to the eye regions so that the required timing is greatly reduced. Here GA is used to search for the possible eye region in an image efficiently. Specifically, we use GAs to find image sub-windows that contain the eye region. Each sub-window is evaluated using a fitness function and subwindows containing eyes eye region is extracted. This is one of the major applications in case of retina recognition used in security purpose. The idea from the method of eigen-eye, and used to determine the fitness values.
