This work proposes a sclera vessel texture pattern synthesis technique. Sclera texture was synthesized by a non-parametric based texture regeneration technique. A small number of classes from the UBIRIS version: 1 dataset was employed as primitive images. An appreciable result was achieved which solicits the successful synthesis of sclera texture patterns. It is difficult to get a huge collection real sclera data and hence such synthetic data will be useful to the researchers.
