Hi can somebody please advise I have made a appointment at my GP but I have to wait over 3 weeks my problem is that there seems to be a dull yellow in the corner of my eyes although my wife seems to think it’s not yellow it’s a cream colour but my chemist seems to think it has a yellow tinge my optician seems to think it’s normal but has agreed to take a second look my question is how does jaundice develop in the eyes does it start in one area then spreads or is the whole eye start off as a yellow colour the photo doesn’t really show to much for some reason it seems worse in the mirror

Hi Sergio, My jaundice started with a slight tinge of yellow all over as well as a slight tinge all over in the eyes (and not in just a corner) It's best to leave the diagnosis of jaundice to the experts. We cannot diagnose on here. To me your eyes look OK but I am not a doctor. Blood tests should show if you are jaundiced. Best wishes to you. Alf


Do you have any reason to think they may be jaundiced?

My late husbands skin turned yellow from top to toe including the whites of his eyes over night while in hospital being detoxed.

Yours look fine in my opinion but I would leave it to your GP to make the diagnosis.
