In brief: Jaundice

Yellow eyes are a feature of jaundice.
There may be a problem with the liver. It needs to be checked. Some slight discoloration of the normally white sclera can occur with sun damage and chronic irritation. See a doctor urgently to make sure that a liver problem doesn't kill you.

In brief: Also pinguecula

In addition to jaundice, some people have yellowish lumps on the white of the eyes on either side of the colored part of the eye called pinguecula (a rarely used common term is "chicken fat").
This is not fat but is a degeneration of elastic tissue between the conjunctiva and sclera (white) of the eye. There is not much that can be done for these, however, unless they become irritated or inflamed.
