Why is parts of the whites of my eyes yellow not all of it just part round outside near skin?

Any yellow : Discoloration of the sclera ( the whites of your eyes) is suspicious in the first place for jaundice. A simple urine and blood examination will prove or disprove my assumption. Af course one need to see a dr. Who may discard the yellow sclera all together... Se a dr! ...Read more

Hi I have a yellow looking patch on the whites of my eyes it has been there for a good while and I've not thought much of it untill my partner noticed ?

Pingueculum: If they are just patches on the whites of the eyes, located at the 3-4 o'clock or 7-8 o'clock meridians (as if the iris were a clock face), they are likely pingueculae (sun damage). Rare tumors occur in this area (but they occur in just one eye and they tend to grow over time), so it is reasonable to have them looked at by an eye care professional. ...Read more

The whites of my eyes are taking on a glassy, slightly yellow hue over the last year. Do you what could be the cause?

Yellow: True yellow discoloration of the whites of the eyes is seen with jaundice caused by blockage in bile ducts, inflammation of the liver, or destruction of red blood cells. In these conditions the urine is brownish and stools are claycolored. My guess is that you don't have jaundice. See your physician if you have further concerns. ...Read more

Why are the 'whites' of my eyes not so white? They can look a little red/yellow at times, but they're always dull.

Why are the 'whites' of my eyes not so white? 
They can look a little red/yellow at times, but they're always dull.

Gilbert's?: Whites are not always pure white. If they seem to be a little more yellow from time to time it may be that you have gilbert's syndrome - a common abnormality in which the breakdown products of your red blood cells are retained in your bloodstream and give your eyes a little yellow. This can be more pronounced during times of physiologic stress. ...Read more

I have noticed the whites of my eyes are becoming yellow, what should I do now. Is this a symptom of last stage cirrhosis?

I have noticed the whites of my eyes are becoming yellow, what should I do now. Is this a symptom of last stage cirrhosis?

Jaundice,,,: This is apparently jaundice and is a symptom of liver disease, not just cirrhosis. It's a result of bile backing up into the blood and body tissues. Please see your doctor as soon as you can to get examined and see what, if anything, can be done to help this. Best of luck. ...Read more
