It should not: Constipation itself should not cause yellowing of your eyes/skin, but diseases of the liver/gallblader system can cause constipations and yellowing of eyes/skin. If you your eyes are turning yellow, i would consult doc for an eval--likely elevated bilirubin levels from excess red blood cell breakdown and/or liver/gallbladder/pancreas trouble. So, don't ignore this. Good luck.

No: Constipation does not generally cause yellow eyes or icterus. See a regular doctor for further evaluation.

What causes of yellow eyes?

Jaundice: This is the buildup of bile pigments which is the result of liver or gall bladder disease. Incomplete excretion of these pigments stains the sclera yellow. With resolution of the problem, the white of the eye will return to normal. Good idea to see your gastroenterologist or primary care doctor soon!
