The Internet Doctors Try to Figure Out What is Going on With Michael Jordan’s Yellow Eyes; Here Are Their Diagnoses (Tweets-Vids)

As the ‘Last Dance’ documentary chronicling the career of Michael Jordan is in full swing it has raised many familiar questions about the man and the myth of Michael Jordan, one such question seeks to find answers as to why the white’s of Mike’s eyes maintain a yellowish tint.

The sclera, which is the medical term for the white portion of a persons’ eyes for years have taken on a yellowish color leading to speculation as to what may be the culprit behind what has now turned into a recognizable feature of Michael Jordan.

While the exact reason has never been disclosed, many believe the yellowing of Michael Jordan’s sclera may be due to his heavy drinking. Cognac and cigars have been a staple of Michael Jordan’s image dating back to his early playing days, the combination of premium cigars and alcohol have been a mainstay well into his retirement from basketball.

Another possibility floated around could be a condition known as jaundice infection, this infection causes oxygen-carrying components in the blood to deteriorate and turn into a substance called bilirubin than in turn yellows the sclera.

No doubt health could be at the center of the mystery behind the color of Michael Jordan’s eyes, its also possible that it is not health-related at all, some African Americans who have more melanin than others experience the same issues with the coloring of the sclera as Mike.

There are multiple reasons why Michael Jordan’s eyes have taken on this yellow color and while we can’t rule out any theory, his eyes have definitely become the focus as the documentary of his time in the NBA airs on Sundays on ESPN.
