Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis or iridiagnosis) is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. Practitioners match their observations to iris charts, which divide the iris into zones that correspond to specific parts of the human body. Iridologists see the eyes as "windows" into the body's state of health.

  • Iridologie (auch Irisanalyse, Irisdiagnostik oder Augendiagnose) ist die pseudowissenschaftliche Ansicht um die Diagnostizierbarkeit systemischer Erkrankungen des Menschen durch Analyse der Gewebsstrukturen und den ihnen zugeordneten Reflexzonen des Auges, speziell der Iris. Sie konnte bisher weder empirisch belegt noch theoretisch begründet werden. Aus Sicht ihrer Anwender ist die Iridologie selten als alleiniges Diagnosewerkzeug einsetzbar und wird deshalb in der Regel durch andere Verfahren ergänzt. Sie diene insbesondere der Feststellung einer Grundveranlagung, die auf mögliche Schwächen im Organismus hinweisen könne.
  • L'iridologie est une technique utilisée en médecine non conventionnelle. Les pratiquants de cette médecine s'appuient sur les motifs, les couleurs et autres caractéristiques de l'iris pour examiner des informations sur la santé du patient. Elle est considérée comme une pseudo-science par la communauté scientifique. Les recherches contrôlées de l'iridologie n'ont montré que des résultats entièrement négatifs. Tous les tests rigoureux en double aveugle n'ont trouvé aucun résultat statistiquement significatif à ses propositions.
  • Irydologia – dział medycyny alternatywnej zajmująca się kompleksową oceną stanu zdrowia na podstawie wyglądu tęczówki oka. Do przeprowadzania badania irydolodzy używają lampy szczelinowej[potrzebny przypis] i porównują zaobserwowane zmiany z mapami irydologicznymi. Mapy te są schematami prezentującymi pola projekcji. Przedstawiają one podział powierzchni tęczówki na pola projekcji poszczególnych układów i narządów wewnętrznych. Każdej części ciała odpowiada ściśle określone miejsce na powierzchni tęczówki oka.

  • La iridología, iriología, iridiología o iridodiagnosis) es una técnica de medicina alternativa cuyos defensores afirman que los patrones, colores y otras características del iris pueden examinarse para determinar la información sobre la salud sistémica de un paciente. Los practicantes comparan sus observaciones con los mapas del iris, los cuales dividen el iris en zonas que corresponden a partes específicas del cuerpo humano, y ven los ojos como las "ventanas" del estado de salud del cuerpo.
  • L'iridologia è un sistema di analisi che si afferma diagnostico basato sullo studio dell'iride dell'occhio. Si tratta di una pratica allo stato dei fatti da considerare pseudoscientifica, essendo priva di fondamento e riscontri scientifici. Diversi studi ne hanno provato l'inefficacia.
  • Irisdiagnostiek (irisscopie of iridologie) is een techniek uit de alternatieve geneeskunde waarvan de voorstanders geloven dat patronen, kleuren en andere kenmerken van de iris als diagnosemiddel kunnen dienen om ziekten en functionele verstoringen in het lichaam vast te stellen. Binnen de medische wetenschap wordt irisdiagnostiek door de meeste wetenschappers als pseudowetenschappelijk of zelfs als kwakzalverij gekenschetst, aangezien empirisch bewijs en theoretische onderbouwing ontbreken.
  • A iridologia, iridodiagnose ou irisdiagnose é uma forma de diagnose (na etmologia: conhecer através da íris) na qual a análise de padrões, cores e outras características da íris permite que se conheçam as condições gerais de saúde baseada na suposição de que alterações na íris refletem doenças específicas em órgãos. Os praticantes dessa técnica utilizam-se de "mapas da íris" ou ainda "cartas topográficas" que divide a íris em zonas que estão relacionadas a porções específicas do corpo humano. Com a exceção de doenças que também atingem a íris, como intoxicações por cobre (o anel de Kayser-Fleischer na Doença de Wilson), no entanto, não há nenhuma evidência científica que comprove o princípio ou a eficácia do método.
  • Иридодиагностика — метод в нетрадиционной медицине, в котором диагностика проводится по обследованию радужной оболочки глаза. Сторонники метода утверждают, что болезни различных органов приводят к изменению рисунка радужной оболочки.

  • Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis or iridiagnosis) is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. Practitioners match their observations to iris charts, which divide the iris into zones that correspond to specific parts of the human body. Iridologists see the eyes as "windows" into the body's state of health. Iridologists claim they can use the charts to distinguish between healthy systems and organs in the body and those that are overactive, inflamed, or distressed. Iridologists claim this information demonstrates a patient's susceptibility towards certain illnesses, reflects past medical problems, or predicts later health problems. As opposed to evidence-based medicine, iridology is not supported by quality research studies and is widely considered pseudoscience. The features of the iris are one of the most stable features on the human body throughout life. The stability of iris structures is the foundation of the biometric technology which uses iris recognition for identification purposes. In 1979, Bernard Jensen, a leading American iridologist, and two other iridology proponents failed to establish the basis of their practice when they examined photographs of the eyes of 143 patients in an attempt to determine which ones had kidney impairments. Of the patients, forty-eight had been diagnosed with kidney disease, and the rest had normal kidney function. Based on their analysis of the patients' irises, the three iridologists could not detect which patients had kidney disease and which did not.
