1 doctor weighed in:

I am a darker skinned individual and my eyes are slighty yellow. For example, I have a yellow ring around my pupil. Is it hereditary? Are there any eye drops that I could take to make the whites of my eyes whiter?

In brief: No drops

Some darker skinned individuals have yellowish sclerae (whites of eyes.
) Others may have a hereditary condition called Gilbert's disease in which serum bilirubin is elevated and causes slight yellow tinge. No drops will help. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
