If your eyes are turning yellowish, you probably have jaundice, which would mean Accutane is likely affecting your liver. Jaundice can also be caused by several other conditions, including Hepatitis C or Gilbert's Syndrome (a little known, harmless condition in which the concentration of billirubin is too low). Call your doctor.

I am not sure whether accutane affects the colouring of the white part of your eyes. I do know however that since my breakout with cystic acne and for the duration that I was taking mino (over 3mnths), the white part of my eyes were yellowish....i truly looked sickly and my brother did think i had jaundice.

Definitely look into this.

GoodLuck with your treatment!!
