    As we all know, long term alcohol can do harm to our body, especially the liver. If it is serious, it can cause cancer. However, long term alcohol can also have effects on eyes. When your liver is affected by long term alcohol, you will notice the whites of your eyes turn yellow, too, which is a sign of liver disease caused by alcohol. Besides, drinking too much alcohol will affect the blood vessels, thus lead to bloodshot in your eyes.
