Yellowing of the eyes

What would cause the white of your eyes to turn yellow? Is this something I should see my doctor for? I have had several people ask me why my eyes are so yellow. The problem is getting worse over the past couple months.

It is probably normal and due to  aging.  However, it could also be sign of liver diseaes--jaundice.
