Some people have yellow eyes just because the light scattering makes it look like blue, especially for lighter-colored eyes, or with the help of the colored-contacts. Keep in mind that the possible eye colors of human beings are amber, blue, brown, gray, green, and hazel, based on the Martin-Schultz scale of eye color. Red only occurs in the case of complete albinism. As for the yellow eyes in the infant, newborn may have yellowish eyes and it called Newborn jaundice, which is a condition marked by high levels of bilirubin in the blood. The infant's skin and whites of the eyes may look yellow when the bilirubin increases. Well, in my opinion, the yellow eyes seem strange.
