Essential Information

Alternative medicine practitioners who utilize iridology believe they can look into a patient's eye and determine health from the color, patterns and shape of the iris. Individuals enrolled in a certification program learn the basic theory behind iridology, as well as how to treat patients. In addition, students examine the anatomy of the eye and various pupil types. There are minimal educational prerequisites for most iridology certification programs, including age limits.

Certification Program in Iridology

Students in a certification program in iridology learn how characteristics of the iris can indicate different sicknesses and diseases. Some courses included in an iridology certification program include:

  • Basic iridology
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Emotional iridology
  • Techniques in analysis
  • Nutrition
  • Running a consulting practice

Employment and Career Overview

Few alternative medicine practitioners use iridology in their practice, with just over 70 who can be contacted for consultation through the IIPA as of 2016. Due to the limited demand for iridologists, many individuals certified in the field are also certified in another aspect of alternative medicine.

Because there are few iridologists, salary data is hard to find. According to PayScale.com in January of 2016, the annual median salary for a wellness coach was $46,732. Practitioners of alternative medicine like licensed acupuncturists made salaries between $29,047 and $83,325 as of January of 2016, PayScale.com reported.

Individuals interested in becoming certified in iridology can turn to the IIPA. Its program covers how to use iridology to detect different sicknesses and diseases. Skill in iridology can supplement other alternative medicine careers, like wellness coaching and acupuncture.
