YELLOWISH TINGE IN EYES

I have noticed a yellowish shade in my eyeballs (in the corner). A family member suggested that I might have a liver problem. Could this be true and if so is there a vitamin or tonic I can take to help? - ie: Milk Thistle.
I drink a fair amount but not heavily and drink lots of water daily so I' m a little worried.

Hi Ali
Yellow eyes can be an indication of liver disease, so rather let your GP do a liver function test to make sure. It can also sometimes be caused by an irritation of the eye if it is just in the corner.
