Eye diagnosis

Decisive indications for therapy

The iris diagnosis is immeasurably precious to the therapist as a diagnostic tool. It enables an insight into the overall situation of the sick person, which neither conversation, laboratory nor face diagnostics can offer. It makes the chosen therapy holistic and individual.


The observation of changes in the eye and its surroundings is as old as people have ever looked at each other. We find indications of the targeted use of eye inspection in medical diagnostics in the ancient Chinese, Hippocrates and Philostratus. Today we have the wonderful possibility to get even closer to what is happening by using magnifying glasses and eye microscopes.

Mirror of the hidden genotype

In order to describe iris diagnosis in more detail, I would like to quote the famous iris diagnostician Rudolf Schnabel, because he knew how to formulate it so exquisitely: “It provides insight into the mostly hidden hereditary mass of the constitution, of which it is capable of being the most excellent mirror.” Iris tissue is connective tissue (matrix). In conclusion it can read: “Structural analysis on living connective tissue.”

The signs, structures, pigmentations and biodynamic indications relevant to the diagnosis of the eye give the knowledgeable observer the extraordinarily significant possibility of recognizing the cause and tendency of a person’s individual illness in advance of illness. Accordingly, an experienced practitioner can initiate preventive measures at a very early stage.
