The eyes as sensory organ bring images into our body, but did you know that :

Your eyes reveal your internal health potential and genetic influences from within to the exterior.

The iris is one of the most complex tissues of the body and is equipped with 28,000 nerve endings. The iris itself is connected through the optic nerve with the Dura Mater of the brain (which is the tough fibrous membrane that covers the brain and spinal cord) through the optic nerve.

The iris is directly and indirectly connected to every organ, gland, and tissue of the body and therefore subject to hormonal, metabolic, and structural changes.

The nerve fibers receive their impulses via the optic nerve, optic thalami and spinal cord.

In this way iridologists maintain the believe that:

  • genetic tendencies and 
  • current health potentials

are reflected in the iris of the eyes.


Our fascia plays an important role in the body’s communication system. 

Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin.

The Dura Mater (as shown above) is a very densely woven connective tissue and part of the fascia like a spider web covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.

Did You Know


When an embryo develops the pigment epithelium, the optic muscles including the dilator muscle are formed from the (neurectoderm) same tissue that makes up the brain and spinal cord.

It has ben stated that this common similarity mirrors the genetic inheritance of each individual.


Even though the iris becomes functional in the 7th month of gestation it will continue to develop until the child reaches 6-7years of age.


Health issues that influence a person over their life time are recorded not just in the iris also in the pupil, sclera, conjunctiva.


Iridologists observed and studied for centuries the

  • iris pigmentation,
  • color,
  • structure

mapped out genetic strengths and possible health challenges.

Nerve fibers in the iris respond to changes in body tissue. It manifests as a reflex physiological response that matches specific iris tissue changes and their location. As the foetus develops all the nerve impulses and genetic information are recorded in the iris structure.

The eyes are a perfect window into the body as well as reflecting the inside to the external.

Through the eyes we are able to not just bring images from the outside world into the body, the eyes can expose also more information about our internal health.

Like a documentary about the most remote areas of nature’s great world forests brought via TV screen into your home so can an iris picture taken tell more about a person’s health history. It is even possible to see if there are irritations or inflammation tendencies in the body and where they might be located.

Furthermore all information gathered can give more clues about possible personality traits and emotional characteristics.
