Iridology is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes an eye chart to determine the patient's overall state of health. The patterns, colors and other aspects of the patient's eyes determine their condition and therefore their treatment patterns, according to this style of medicine.
To gain the most information from their patients' eyes, iridologists use flashlights, cameras and magnifying glasses to inspect the patient's eyes to determine if there have been any health changes. Most charts are divided into upwards of 90 zones, though some offices may have variations in their charts.
