JA: OK. The Opthamologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Opthamologist can help you best.
Customer: I don't know how to describe it bitter, but not the whole white area- it's just a small circle yellow
JA: Is there anything else the Opthamologist should be aware of?
Customer: yes
JA: What else should I tell the Opthamologist?
Customer: I've been alcoholic for almost a year. Every day I drink till I sleep. However, I got help and I'm now a week old of free alcohol. Also, a doc that helped me gave me multivitamin, Folic Acid and Thiamine. But I'm still worried about this because it only appears like 4 or 3 months ago

This is Dr. David

it can be 100% normal to have some yellow discorolation at the very corners of the whites or sclera of your eye.

this can can yellow as we get older.

this is not a sign of jaundice or liver problems.

the whole while sclera has to turn yellow for you to be worried about jaundice or liver problems.

I am glad you quit drinking. keep taking the multivitamins

and get into a support group like AA to keep you from drinking.

let me know if you have questions.
