We propose a method of extending the depth of field (EDOF) of conventional lenses for a low cost iris recognition front-facing smartphone camera. Longitudinal chromatic aberration (LCA) can be induced in the lens by means of dual wavelength illumination. The EDOF region is then constructed from the sum of the adjacent depths of field from each wavelength illumination. The lens parameters can be found analytically with paraxial raytracing. The extended depth of field is dependant on the glass chosen and position of the near object point.
