Iridology is the study of the eyes to gain insight into a person’s overall health. We look at the colour and structure of the iris, sclera and pupil to help gain an understanding of past, present and future health conditions.
Different parts of the eyes relate to different organs, parts of the body and personality characteristics, and we are able to gain insights into their weaknesses and strengths.
Iridology can determine potential health risks at the earliest stage and can identify specific nurture points that we need to give extra attention to in daily life.
What happens in the reading?
Once you have purchased the iridology reading you will receive an email with instructions (check your spam/promotions folder if you don’t see it). You will be required to email me 3 high quality photos of each eye, to make sure I can see all the important markings.
Feel free to let me know in the email if there is anything specific you’re excited to find out about or any health concerns you have that you would like me to focus on.
I will then analyse the photos and write a report of findings, which will be emailed to you within three weeks.
How to get a good photo
We need really crisp, detailed photos of both eyes for iridology. Use the highest resolution possible and get someone to help you. If you’ve got a good camera, use that (set to macro), otherwise an iphone should be fine (using the back camera).
Natural day light is best, indoors and next to a window.
- Position yourself close to a window and stand sideways to it (facing the window will cause glare).
- Use your fingers to open your upper and lower eyelids so that your whole iris (coloured part of your eye) is visible.
- Get close to the camera, making sure it focuses on the iris and look directly into the lens.
- Use a tripod or have someone with a steady hand to take a few photos. Have the iris in the centre of the photo.
- Adjust to get better photos if necessary: move back slightly, try flash, use HDR on phone, etc.
- Check photos: Zoom in to see if the photo is clear, focused and that you can see as much detail as possible. If the iris is blurry, there is glare, red eye or you can’t see the entire iris, try again.
- Once you 3 great quality photos of each eye, rename them on your computer (eg. Lucy Jones -Left eye 1) and email them to me. If the files are big you can send them in multiple emails.
*Just remember my reading can only be as good as the quality of the photos, so be sure to double and triple check the quality.
