The examination of the sclera or white of the eye and the interpretation of the lines or blood vessels seen there is an ancient art passed on from one healer to the other. Although there has been much inferred about the lack of scientific background of this art, you might talk to your local veterinarian and see if the white of the eye of his patient does not tell him much about the condition present in his mute supplicant. Much also has been said about acupuncture and its lack of science, but the individual who observes major surgery accomplished without the use of anaesthetics often becomes a believer without the benefit of science.
So it is with Sclerology. We have observed individuals proficient in this form of correlation of body malfunction with visible signs in the sclera of the eye enough times to convince ourselves beyond a shadow of doubt that it is valid. But since We like to know the reason why, We have spent some time with our anatomy and physiology books to try and find a correlation between the sclera and the indications of malfunction it presented. We finally found that the tissues of the sclera are continuous with the dura mater of the brain via the fibrous sheath of the optic nerve.This to us was an adequate link to give a physiological and anatomical reason for the relationship.
At this point we wish to emphasize that Sclerology is not an exact science, but it is a quick easy method of determining where a potential problem is within our body. It does not name a disorder--only that a malfunction exists in an area or gland.
Sclerology is comparatively simple and superficial in its application. A doctor can use it as a guide to perform additional detailed examination procedures, eliminating those which do not have to be done.
In examining the sclera of the eyes, remember that the sclera which is on your right is the left sclera of the individual you are xamining, and vice versa. The lines in the right sclera are indicative of conditions on the same side of the body, hand, foot and head with the exception of the brain area. There is a crossover of the areas of the head above the supra-orbital ridge, the right eye sclera hen shows the left brain problems and the left eye sclera demonstrates right brain problems.
