I have a friend who refuses to accept the fact that the part of his eyes (which we call the "whites") have a yellowish/brownish discoloration to them. I said i know for a FACT this means that there is something internal going on with your health. He said he has gotten physicals and taken specific tests and he is and has been healthy. I don't believe him. Please tell me what the medical term is for the "white part" of the eye. Can you tell me what is normal condition for the whites of the eyes, and can you tell me does the discoloration ALWAYS mean there are health issues? What are those health issues and causes. What is the best way to get this tested?
