It never fails. Say the word "iridology" and get strange looks in return from people. Why? One reason is even though it is considered an alternative modality of health, it's not a very commonly used one. And also, some of those puzzled looks are a result of iridology being mistaken as a means of assessing vision. So, what is it really? It is a science related to the study of the iris of the eye. Who knew that the color portion of the eye can tell an iridologist a lot about the internal makeup of an individual's genetics?
We’ve heard the phrase about how currently accepted science is first ridiculed, then violently opposed, then finally received as obvious fact. The Eyology sciences of Iridology and Sclerology are in the first phase of this phenomenon.

Iridology is a scientific study stemming back hundreds of years. However, scientific documented only came into being in the mid to late 1800's which was brought to the forefront by a Hungarian physician by the name of Ignatz Von Preczely.
