Q. If someone as alcoholism do there eyes change color? My husband says his work mate told him that if you’re an alcoholic your eyes can change color. As an example If you have blue eyes they become a darker blue because of something in your bloodstream?. I think my husband’s workmate is winding my husband up, or is he telling the truth?

A. That is an untruth. The color of the eyes in an alcoholic will not change color. The only thing in the eyes that will change color are the corneas (the whites of the eyes) they will turn yellow due to jaundice and probably cirrhosis of the liver. The skin will also turn yellow with the jaundice.
