How to Take Your Iris Photos

If you choose to do an Iridology Assessment with a digital camera or smartphone, it’s best to have someone else hold the camera, so the pictures are clear and not blurry. Please send 2-3 photos of each eye. Sometimes you may have to submit a few rounds of photos before we get everything we need to do the assessment.


  1. To take the best photos for your assessment, set your camera to MACRO and try, if possible, to use natural, daytime indoor light with a flash. Set the size of the photo for a higher resolution, with a minimum of 2.5M (2208 x 1248). 4.5M (2784 x 1568) is best. 
  2. If wearing contact lenses please remove them.
  3. Stand sideways from any window (facing the window will cause glare). Have someone else hold the camera. Hold the upper and lower eyelids open to make entire iris visible.  
  4. Keep the eye close to the camera/Ismartphone.
  5. Check your photos for lighting and clarity. Check the photo and use the zoom feature to see the iris. Be sure the iris is clear, otherwise try again. Be sure there is no red-eye, otherwise turn on ‘red-eye reduction’ and try again. Be sure the entire iris is visible otherwise try again. Be sure there is no significant glare on the iris otherwise turn your body slightly away from any window and try again.
  6. Email your final iris photo results to

These are acceptable iris photos that can be taken with the digital camera or your phone. Perfect photos – note flash inside pupil and the full iris is visible.
