Clinics can participate in clinical studies by way of including patient histories with their case study uploads. The benefits include developing more accurate assessments and possible discovery of new pathological conditions. Clinics who participate will also receive a 50% discount on each assessment.
- Patient history is by default optional and no names are used. We also follow standard HIPPA guidelines.
The history of the pupil assessment technology started back in the late 90’s with a Korean company (SUTTONG, STC) and Russian scientists who developed an iridology analysis system for hospitals named the Bexel Irina with a final cost over 10 million USD in development:
The Bexel was clinically tested and received Korean government clinical study approval which achieved a high degree of accuracy in clinical diagnosis. The development of the Bexel system was one of the first biometric algorithms designed for automatic detection of the human eye, pupil and collarette. The Bexel system was temporarily sold to Asian hospitals for 35,000 USD.
When the “The Asian Flu” economic crisis occurred in 1997, Suttong closed down their manufacturing plant and the Bexel Irina was no longer produced. Interestingly enough, a few scientists who had been developing for Suttong, emigrated to Russia and began developing a newer version of iridodiagnostic software using an updated algorithm from the original Bexel software. The Velchover research data was exclusively used for the main design and development of new iridodiagnostic software. This ‘iridodiagnostic’ software is still currently used by over 5000 Russian medical doctors. Currently there are English and Spanish versions available at www.iridology-software.com.
In the past 20 years, we have continued developing and upgrading the source code from Bexel and Russian iridodiagnostic programs to keep this technology alive and make improvements. We are very confident of the high accuracy capabilities in using this assessment tool and working toward future developments.
Yes, we offer two trial assessments for your review. Please note that eye images must be approved for assessment. In many cases, images taken from smart phones are rejected due to irregular megapixel sizes that create false multiformed pupils. If you can set your phone to take standard photo size of 640×480, chances are they will be accepted. We will do our best to convert various pixel size images but cannot guarantee final acceptance.
This assessment is for the pupils and collarette and more accurate than iridology assessments due to the following factors.
1: The iris is genotypic and iris signs in the trabecular mesh, such as lacunae, only represent weak connective tissue and not active pathology. The body has the wonderful ability to compensate genetically weak connective tissue when we are younger. A lacunae found in lung sector of an individual who is 18 years old does not represent an active pathology unless there are also signs in the pupil.
2: The pupil will only start to show irregularities when there is a chronic pathology present. If the pupil sector that shows deformation, it is most probable that there will also be iridological sign in the same sector such as lucunae, pigments or transversals. The pupil deformation indicates an active pathology that can related to a genetic weakness or specific organ or system dysfunction.
3: It is nearly impossible for any human to accurately analyze all the possible irregularities of the human pupil and why highly scientific software is required to assist in the pupillary assessment process.
4: It is difficult to assess successful treatment using iridology since the iris trabeculae is genetic and does not change in exception to aging, pigment dispersion and transversal development. There is no hard data to support these findings. However, the pupil can show if treatment is successful by way of positive changes in the pupillary parameters located in assessment report.
Iridology can still be a very useful tool for the analysis of genetic weaknesses and there are currently over 150 clinical studies that have shown high accuracy in the detection of several active pathologies.
Sorry, the pupil assessment reporting technology is only available as a service. We are working toward developing the pupil assessment software for smartphones and still in the development stage. Please sign up for our newsletter for updates!
Final assessment results are evaluated for pupil inconsistencies and only approved by Bryan K. Marcia, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus.
You can attempt in taking pupil images with your smart phone for assessment but we cannot guarantee acceptance for assessment. Try reviewing this youtube tutorial or more complex method for taking images of the eye.
Processing smartphone images for assessment does not guarantee that final assessment results will be approved after final evaluation. There are instances when submitted images using various degrees of pixel size and cannot be used for assessment.
Using 640X480 is the most recommended resolution for taking images of the pupil. Other resolutions can be used but should be multiples of 640X480, for example, 1280X960, 2560X1920, 5120X3840,etc. If resolution is not multiples of the standard 640X480, there is the possibility of incorrect compression of images leading to oval-horizontal pupil and false positives which are rejected.
At this time we are attempting to correct image resolution inconsistencies.
To understand more about correct image resolutions, please refer to the sample chart below:
We recommend the dino-lite iriscope for taking images of the human eye and is medical device certified. This iriscope is available in most countries world-wide and if your clinic are located in North America, please contact us for a 15% discount from manufacturer list price. It is also highly recommended to capture images using BMP instead of JPG formats.
No, this service is only currently available to medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, and chiropractors for adjunctive analysis.
We only offer consult for topics involving analysis results. We do not recommend any specific treatments.
Pupil Analysis offers a discounted pupil assessment service for integrative medical-health clinics and independent health practitioners. This assessment includes biometric analysis of the pupil and collarette parameters.
Please fill out the clinic-practitioner application form below and we will contact you with more information and discount pricing offers.
Yes. The fee for pupil assessment for clinics is currently 30.00 USD per assessment. A three month follow-up is no charge.
Yes, STC (Suttong) utilized this software technology in a Korean government approved clinical studies held at AJU University Hospital for Certification in Korea. (FDA Approved Medical Device Class 3 in Korea) Please review the full study here: Korean Hospital Study using Bexel Irina Iridological Analysis System

Eye image approval and analysis results will normally take less than 24 hours. Analysis results will be available the same day once fee has been received in exception to the monthly billing option.
Yes, we will send you a code for one free analysis that can be used after three months to determine if there is any changes in your pupillary parameters. The second analysis results can be very beneficial to determine any positive health changes after a minimum of three month health regime prescribed by your doctor, integrative medicine clinician or naturopath.
The code will become active on the fourth month of original analysis date. This code will then be valid for one year.
