Biometrics finds tons of app within the modern-day security aspects whether it's going to be in industrial sector, defense sector or in domestic sectors. In this world, without biometrics, it is very difficult to incorporate the security measures in any organizations.The personal identification can be very important problem in any bio-metric recognition scenarios.. Hence, biometrics of a licensed person into the work environment plays a really important role. Quite a no. of bio-metric methods exist for identification purpose, viz., physiological & behavioural. Some of them are hand, iris, voice, finger-print, face, ear, gait/gesture, posture, thumb, ear, vien, code, password, signature, pattern, palm print, etc.. As quite substantial no. of biometrics methods for detecting the human identifying the person by developing new approaches using Fractal Dimension methodologies. In this paper this paper is a collection of the works done by various author in the relevant field till date. This survey paper aim at providing a basic information about the on-going current work & the completed works in the field of biometric recognition using the retina so that the paper give a base for the other researchers to start the their works.
