In this survey we first discuss the importance of eye localization
as the initialization step for many face processing techniques,
then we further show the influence of the localization precision
on the rate achieved by some baseline face recognition techniques.
To do so, we give the definition of the objective error measures
already known in literature.
A brief review of some state-of-the-art eye localization methods
is subsequently given, focusing on those articles that tackle the
problem of precise localization and that use some objective
criterion for performance evaluation. Finally their localization
results are compared on a number of different datasets.
