The only thing I can think of is jaundice, but that may be a little extreme. One of the symptoms is yellow eyes.

That was a good link . There can be many reasons for your symptoms described . Internet diagnosis is not the place to find it ...its best to go to your DR . It could be nothing . I came back from India once and my skin went yellowish ,thought I had hepatitis , got tested and it turned out negative .

That link doesn't seem to work for me but I know at least it isn't jaundice. My mum had that very severely as a child and now whenever she gets ill her eyes turn yellow, heh.



Really I just thought it was a sign of a deficiency of something or other, nothing else seems to be up with me. Hopefully the multivitamin will do the trick

Isn't iodine related to yellow eyes? (can't recall if it's too much or too little that can cause trouble)



Has anyone else noticed it besides you, yourself?

My partner says he can't see any difference, I'm going to check again in the daylight tomorrow and see if it is just the light playing tricks on me. I don't smoke, no (or hang out in smoky places etc).



Iodine is something I was thinking of recently with respect to thinking of ordering the Vegan Society supplement, the multi vitamin/mineral tablets I got today have that in though I think so that's good.



I can't seem to find anything online really connecting yellowish eyes with vitamin or mineral deficiency. I don't know, maybe it's just an overall sign of lacking in everything - my diet has been really bad the last two weeks :/

i doubt it would show up in just two weeks.



would beta carotene do this? like it can turn your skin yellowish if you eat too much?

My eyes seem to be better now, I can't tell if they are back to normal but I'm certainly not spotting any yellowishness to them.



I'm going to keep taking a multivitamin I think as I'm concerned that maybe I wasn't getting enough of the little things like iodine and selenium. Better safe than sorry

Good to hear



Although, saying "I know this girl with yellow eyes" might've been kinda cool for your friends.
