A degree qualified naturopath is taught that iridology is a naturopathic diagnostic tool to be conducted at the end of a full-length naturopathic consultation to confirm diagnosis only. Iridology should never be used to diagnose and only ever be used to confirm a naturopathic diagnosis after taking a full length consultation. Anyone who uses iridology to diagnose is a quack. 

On saying that though it is a useful tool and can be very interesting. What is in your iris is also in your mothers and fathers iris and does not necessarily mean that you are suffering from this condition now. Iridology can indicate genetic weakness and let you know what you need to look out for and how best to avoid disease.

Every fibre, colour, pattern, and defect in the iris is believed to have a reflex correlation with a disease manifestation or organ system malfunction. By studying the eye, Iridologists can reveal a patient's overall state of health, as well as their tendencies toward inherited disease and possible future problems.

Iridology is used as more of a diagnostic tool than a treatment. It is not a medical exam or a definitive diagnosis of disease. Rather, it proposes to recognize:

* Toxins and their locations
* Stages of Inflammation
* Inherent Weakness or Strength
* General Health level
* Biochemical Deficiencies

Certain aspects, such as pupil size and a marking called arcus sclerosis, are used by doctors and do indicate what is actually occurring now.
