    Now, usually, people with yellow eyes due to jaundice. A yellow pigment is also called bilirubin. The bilirubin is processed by the liver and expelled from the body in a substance called bile. So, if you have a yellow eyes, it maybe a sign that your liver not work rightly. So, yellow eyes are not a sign of eye infection.

    No, you can not say it. As we know that Yellow eyes are a symptom of a condition rather than a condition unto itself. This yellowing of the white of the eye, which can also affect the skin and the mucus membranes, is called jaundice. It happens when red blood cells break down faster than the liver can process them, resulting in a buildup of bilirubin in the bloodstream. Yellow eyes in an adult, however, typically means there is cause for serious concern regarding problems of the liver or bile ducts. So you should be careful about it.

    The yellow eyes are not a sign that you have an eye infection because there are so many reasons to have yellow in your eyes. However, if you have got a heat inside or your eyes have high stress; your eyes are also yellow. That means you need have a good rest. And do not have a large number of fruits or vegetables with natural pigment either, like carrots, pumpkins and citrus. Meantime, i would like to suggest you to wash your hands well and do not rub the eyes often.
