What is iridology?

The eye – it tells you everything about your health

Iridology – this science has been practiced for a few thousand years in the Far East and Ancient Greece. Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine attaches great importance to it.

The study which evaluates one's state of health, through the use of complex methods as well as on the basis of the iris' appearance.

In Europe, iridology has seen the best of times and the worst of times. Interest in iridology was at its greatest during the 19th century in Europe. It is said to have been discovered around 1861, and the Hungarian doctor, Ignatz von Peczely is recognised as its founding father. He broke the leg of an owl and noticed that in the lower part of the iris, there appeared a dark discoloration. When the leg came to heal, the discoloration began to lighten and around it, there appeared what seemed to be little, light lines.

The second 'father' to iridology is thought to be Nils Liljequist from Sweden, who greatly suffered from the outgrowth of his lymph nodes. After a round of medication made from iodine and quinine, he observed many differences in the colour of his iris. This observation inspired him to create and publish an atlas in 1893, which contained 258 black and white illustrations and 12 colour illustrations of the iris, known as the Diagnosis of the Eye.

Interest began to grow in the mid-twentieth century and is currently a mandatory subject at certain international medical colleges.
