    Well, it is true that yellow eyes are symptoms of jaundice. Jaundice is not a serious disease but still kind of annoying which is often caused by a wide range of disease. More than 15 physical diseases can lead to jaundice, alcoholic liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, chronic active hepatitis, just to mention a few of them. The side effects of jaundice to the eye include itchy eyes and yellow eyes. If unluckily getting jaundice, keep calm and diagnose the specifical cause of it and then have it treated. I am sure that yellow eyes will disappears as soon as jaundice is cured.

    Well, yes, jaundice can lead to yellow eyes. And also jaundice can affect your eyes in some degree. First, you need to know that if your eyes take on a yellow tinge, the reason may be jaundice. There is a substance called bilirubin, and when too much bilirubin accumulates in the eyes, jaundice can result. When jaundice occurs in your eyes, it will just make your eyes look yellow. And that also can be a sign of serious eye problems. So just pay more attention to it.
