This very obvious little detail captured the attention of thousands of internet users, so much so that it even became a point of discussion in its own right on the famous American platform Reddit, where many curious people went to try and find out what was going on. I know we have enough health concerns to worry about right now, but is anyone else concerned for Michael Jordan’s jaundice eyes in the “Last Dance”? Like for real it looks like he’s in liver failure. #TheLastDance pic.twitter.com\/ScUrMgd29e— Jill (@sadnurse420) April 27, 2020 Does anyone know why Michael Jordan's eyes are red? This is troubling in The Last Dance...and never mentioned. I'm assuming he's fine, but I've never seen this before. pic.twitter.com\/dnC79dL2En— zakiyyah alexander (@zakiyyahwashere) May 2, 2020 Although many fans were concerned that this, as Vice explained, could be a sign of jaundice caused by liver disease, others said the NBA star already had yellow eyes back in the early 2000s, over 15 years ago. They have been like this for about 15 years, so he has done alright considering then ...— Danny (@dannykay10) May 5, 2020 ‘Yellow eyes should not be ignored’‘Yellow eyes should not be ignored because they are a sign of something more going on. There is literally more than meets the eye,’ explained Dr Val Phua, an ophthalmologist at Eagle Eye Centre Singapore, to Vice.‘Leaving eye conditions untreated includes compromise in vision and even blindness.’In Michael Jordan’s case, the doctor observed that:‘[Jordan’s] eyes are slightly discoloured which may point to jaundice, but there seems to also be a slightly raised lesion on the eye, which can point to something local causing the discolouration like a pinguecula.’ In case you weren’t aware, a pinguecula is a small, yellowish growth that develops on the surface of the eye, often due to UV emitted by the sun.‘Yellowish discolouration of the eyes may be more obvious in a dark-skinned individual compared with someone who is fair-skinned,’ added Dr Val Phua.
