What are the causes of whites of your eye to turn yellow

Jaundice?

Eyes
Sometimes if the entire white part of your eye is turning yellow, this could be a sign of elevated bilirubin in your blood, and is related to many conditions affecting the liver and gallbladder. You will need to see your primary care MD right away to check this with a simple blood test. If just small areas become yellowed, this can be elastotic degeneration, a sun exposure problem on the eye
