Iridology is a diagnostic tool for the human body developed in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1920’s. It uses patterns of tissue structure found in the pupil of the eye to identify dysregulation of organs, glands and other structures in the body. From the perspective of the Holographic Body this proposition is no more outlandish than that the meridians all have points in the ears, feet and hands, or that manipulation of the Atlas (cervical vertebrae C1) influences global structural, biochemical and emotional function, both of which are easy to experience.
I have been interested in Iridology for many years, but have never formally studied it. The major drawback to the technique is that you need to study the pupil of the eye, which is challenging to do. Ideally, taking a picture of the eye allows for more indepth examination and a record to refer to as changes in structure, chemistry and emotional regulation emerge. I have purchased several different tools for doing this, none of which has been satisfactory in a clinical setting.
I recently had the idea to use the camera in the IPad for this purpose, as you get a large image which can be studied in detail. I started buying add on lenses for the IPad for this purpose. Most of these lenses were very inexpensive. However, quality and bad experiences with vendors kept me exploring the options. I now can offer an Iridology setup for a few $ (if you own an IPad or other tablet computer) that will allow you to explore this subject. The magnification is just about right, and the remaining issue is adequate light, without a reflection in the pupil. I am working with the reflection issue by taking multiple images.
1) It is important that the tablet is aligned with the vertical midline of the face, as the characteristics of the eye line up as do the numbers on the face of a clock.
2) These images require that you get very close to the eye, within 1/4 inch. Please be extremely careful! I have found that using some form of image stabilization app is helpful, and on the IPad, I am currently using PicItEasy ($5.00) which works pretty good.

This lens kit is not only useful for taking images of the eye, but is a fun addition to taking pictures with the iPhone or iPad.

This is one of the original publications on this subject. There are many other books available, which look like fun to explore.
