Yellow Eyes

Yellow eyes is another common symptom of jaundice, where the white of the eye appears yellow. The discoloration normally starts at the outer edges of the eye, spreading inward toward the iris. In severe cases of jaundice, there may be no white visible.

Increased amounts of bilirubin in the body causes yellowing of the eyes. It's important to note that if a person has yellowing of the skin but not of the eyes, the discoloration is unlikely to be caused by jaundice.3‘Jaundice.’ Mount Sinai Health System, www.mountsinai.org/health-library/diseases-conditions/jaundice
