    You should take notice of your yellow eyes which could be caused by the liver problems. You should go to see the doctor and have a full check on the eyes. If there is any problem, you should treat it as soon as possible. You should have the good rest now for the eyes and use some eye drops to moisture the eyes.

    Well, for your situation, I have to say that you may suffer yellow eye, so you should just be careful about your eyes. Generally speaking, there are many people who have yellow eyes. And just like you have said, for yellow eyes, when the whites of the eyes take on a yellowish tinge, it can be possible. According to some experts, yellow eyes are generally a sign of jaundice caused by a buildup of bilirubin in the blood, which is a yellow-colored pigment that is produced by the breakdown of old red blood cells. So that can be very dangerous to have it. For the causes, there are many factors you have to pay more attention to it. For example, smoking, too much drinking, even stress can be common ones. To get rid of it, you can mix water, orange juice, sugar, salt, and water together, and then drink them for a time. That can be very beneficial for your symptom.

    Generally speaking, there is a possibility of getting scleral icterus when people have yellow eyes which means the whites of the eyes take on a yellowish tinge, a sign of jaundice caused by a buildup of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin which is normally processed by the liver and released into the intestine in bile before being excreted from the body through the feces is a yellow-colored pigment that is produced by the breakdown of old red blood cells. There are many reasons for yellow eyes, such as bile duct narrowing or obstruction due to gallstones or pancreatitis, cancer including that of the liver and pancreas, cirrhosis which is liver scarring due to a variety of liver diseases, drug-induced cholestasis to slow of bile flow, hepatitis caused by alcoholism, medications or infection, ischemic hepatocellular jaundice due to a lack of blood or oxygen reaching the liver, pregnancy-induced obstruction of the bile ducts and so on. It is better to go to the doctor's for an overall examination to find out the cause of your yellow eyes as soon as possible in case of it worsening.
