Occlusion, glare and secondary reflections formed due to and on the spectacles - results in poor detection, localization, and recognition of eye/face features. We term all the problems related to the usage of spectacles as The spectacle problem. Though several studies on the spectacle detection and removal have been reported in the literature, the study focusing on spectacle problem removal is very limited. One of the main reasons being, the nonavailability of a facial image database highlighting the spectacle problems. Therefore, we created an Indian facial image database consisting of corresponding facial images with and without spectacle problems. The release of database Version 1 contains a total of 271 images. However,  the release of database Version 2 contains a total of 1,23,213 images from 58subjects.
