I guess by orange tint under eyes you mean the skin under the eyes is orange. This can occur due to-
  • Carotenemia - This is excess of carotene deposit in the skin. This occur due to excess intake of certain fruits and vegetables. Read more here
  • If this is present from the very beginning then the orange tint can be due to thin skin in the eyelids area leading to prominent blood vessels causing an orange tint
  • certain medicines if taken for long time can cause deposits in the skin.
If he is taking any particular type of medicines from a long time or is taking high carotene rich food then he needs to modify that.
