What does it mean when the whites of someone's eyes have a discoloration(not talking about pink-eye)?
Is it a lack of vitamins/malnutrition? Or is it a prelude to a bigger problem in the future?

I know that if someone's whites are yellow, it's a possible sign of steroid abuse. That's the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

Could be jaundice, Vitamin C overdose (yes it can really happen, or burst blood vessel in the eye.

Yellow is usually the liver, usually from drinking way too much for way too long?

If it's a yellowish tint, it could be jaundice. Better get the person checked by a doctor for sure.

yellow? if so it most likely signals a problem in the liver. have your liver enzymes checked.

Depends on the color it is... Yellow tint, for example, could be related to hepatitis.

could pingueculas or pterygiums go to eye doctor and have checked out

Depends on the color, there are a number of indications for various things. Jaundice shows yellow in the whites of the eyes for example.

YELLOW EYES = JAUNDICE!!?? No...more likely "Pinguecula"

Every time someone posts on Yahoo Answers that they have "yellow eyes", 50 posters yell that they have liver problems and "jaundice" and suggest an emergent/immediate visit to the E.R. or whatever.

Fact is true jaundice in the eyes is fairly rare. I've been practicing 7 years and I've *never* seen it in any patient's eyes. the chances of an otherwise healthy person having enough liver problems to acquire yellow eyes is in my estimation extremely low. People with liver problems generally have many more symptoms and more health problems than just "yellow" in their eyes. By the time they are jaundiced, they usually already know they have liver problems.

Of course the only way to tell what you really have that is making your eyes yellow is to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist. So if your eyes look "yellow" to you, you probably need an eye examination. Actually you definitely would need an eye exam, b/c while I personally think jaundice is rare, it is a fairly serious condition so you'd want to rule that out 1st.

But IMO the vast majority of people who complain about having "yellow eyes" have "pingueculae", not jaundice:


A pinguecula is an inflammatory response usually from UV exposure. It is not usually dangerous. There are no eyedrops to make a pinguecula less yellow, the only real treatment is surgical excision.

depends on the color of the discoloration. if you're talking about the yellow in the corner of the eye only, that's usually caused from scarring from eye sunburns. But if BOTH eyes are yellow and all of the whites are yellow, then usually it's jaundice. Jaundice could be caused by inflammation of the liver, medications you have taken and your liver cannot get rid of them and it's affecting your liver. Jaundice is caused by an accummulation of bilirubin in your body and it backs up into your blood system. If this is the case, DEFINATELY go see a doctor.

they maybe high

Could be a diet or health problem. Diabetes or Jaundice, for example.

Yellow color could be jaundice or liver disease.

what color ? you didn't say
