Hello, I am 15 years old. My eyes used to be white and sparkly but now I have been noticing that there seems to be yellow stains in them. It's not yellow all over just the part that you can see because when I open my eyes really wide, the parts above and below are white. In my right eye especially, there is like a bloodshot thing. It is not red but kinda yellow close to brown. lately, I don't know if it's my imagination or what but lately it seems to be getting worse. How do I get rid of these yellow stains in my eyes and the bloodshot thing. I have used visine and it clears up the blodd vessels when I am tired but the yellow remains.
I would not recommend that you use visine. It is a medicine which constricts blood vessels. When the medicine wears off, sometimes, the eyes can become redder. I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the cause of the discoloration. It might be related to sun exposure.
