Hello,

Are you noticing this yellowish tint on the whites of your eyes when you look in the mirror?
Or is it in your vision?
Do you see any flashes of lights?
How long has it been there?

the yellowish tint is in the whites of my eyes, but only under the eyelid. it is not in my vision and i see no flashes of light. I started noticing it a couple of months ago but it could have been there a lot longer

You are describing a pinguecula. This is caused from dryness and UV damage effects. Artificial tears and UV sun protection will help prevent it from enlarging.
