If this explanation proves to be a good working hypothesis, much support may be expected from clinical diagnosis and, possibly, new and noninvasive therapies could be developed.
We have already published results that demonstrate a statistically significant difference between the densitometric pattern of the iris photography between heart disease patients and healthy controls. Screenings can be performed in large populations if they prove to be of high predictive value.
Selective stimulation of zonal transparencies of the iris by an artificial light source, coherent or not, can be a refined and novel therapeutic means. Indeed, simple devices called the SectoStim™ and APIOIDA™ ( Anterior Pole and Iris Optimal Imaging by Directivity Actuation ) are meant to direct the light stimulus in a controlled manner.
For a general discussion of the matter we refer to our monograph on what was operationally defined “ Functio Ocularis Systemica ( FOS ) ”.
