About Yellow eyes
When the white part of the eyes turns yellow, it usually indicates a problem in the body, most likely a liver disease, gall bladder, pancreatic disease or some other rare diseases. Technically known as ‘icterus’, yellow eyes could be caused due to excess bilirubin in the body. Bilirubin is a brownish yellow substance found in bile, which is responsible for breaking down fat. When needed it is released by the gall bladder into the small intestine to break down fat that are being digested. Bilirubin is produced when the liver breaks down old red blood cells, but when an abnormally high number of red blood cells are broken down then it leads to excess bilirubin in the body as a result it gets reflected in the eye causing yellow eyes.
