Depends: Are saying the actual iris inside the eye? Or the tissue around the iris on the surface of the eye. The iris is fixed in color and will not change unless there is severe internal inflammation or actual trauma. Yellowing around the iris can be a sign of hepatitis or other liver diseases. Check with your family doctor to evaluate this.

This is a situation: Where a picture is worth a thousand words. Either take a high res photo of what you see that concerns you and post it in a HeathTap prime consult with an ophthalmologist or better yet, especially if there is pain or blurred vision, see a doc in urgent care or the ER today. It's unusual to have clouding or blurring of the cornea in someone your age. An eye exam will sort this out easily. Good luck
