    Well, you don't want to quite trust what you have.  The human iris
    can change over time, and in particular may change color or develop
    occlusions from injury.   
    Other things can also affect iris recognition, including cataracts,
    some forms of infection, contact lenses, certain forms of injury,
    Simply FYI.
