Assessing health through studying the eyes is thought to date back at least as far as ancient Greece and Hippocrates. In the 19th century, this art was revived by a Hungarian called Ignacz von Peczely. As a boy, he was said to have observed how the iris of an owl changed, first when it suffered a broken leg and then as it got better. He went on to make observations of the human iris, often being able to predict someone’s impending illness. After qualifying as a doctor, he drew up the first chart of the iris as a key to health. Peczely and those who went on to develop his work in the early years of the 20th century were ridiculed by the medical establishment but today more Iridologists work in the medical profession than in complimentary therapy.
