    Yellow eyes are generally considered as serious eye problems which can be caused by quite a few physical problems. Firstly your eyes will turn yellow along with the appearance of jaundice. Jaundice is connected with excess systemic bilirubin and can result in yellowness on the surface of the eye. Disorder in the liver function can affect the eye either and cause yellow eyes. If you get anemia your eyes will be yellow as a consequence of the rapid excessive breakdown of the red blood cells. Related symptoms that may be along with yellow eyes are fever, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Since yellow eyes require much attention you should be conscious of the underlying causes and make corresponding measures to treat them.

    Well, for some people, yellow eye can be possible. And for the causes, first you need to know something about it. Generally speaking, if your eyes take on a yellow tinge, the reason may be jaundice. There is a substance called bilirubin, which remains after old red blood cells are disposed of, is responsible for the yellow pigment. Of course, in common, if too much bilirubin accumulates in the body, jaundice can result. And then, yellow eyes can occur too. That is why you get yellow eyes. In detail, yellow eyes can be caused by many reasons, such as iron deficiency, smoking and so on. If you suffer yellow eyes because of iron deficiency, just eat foods such as beef, liver, chicken, green leafy vegetables and beans to increase your iron levels. Anyway, just be careful about it.

    Once your eyes change the color, you may take special attention to it. Usually the liver problems or other body problems may cause the yellow symptom of the eyes. You should have the good rest for the eyes, not sitting in front of the computers for a long time. You should also have the healthy diet, eating more green food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes.
