Jaundice: Gilbert's syndrome produces an increased amount of bilirubin in the blood, but normally has no serious consequences. Mild jaundice may appear under conditions of stress, exertion, fasting, and infections, but the condition usually has few other symptoms or risks. Reducing these risk factors may help. There is no way to change the color of the eyes except through contact lens use (scleral lens).
