If you're one of millions who've recently watched Michael Jordan's new Netflix series The Last Dance, one of the first questions you ask yourself is: "What's up with Michael Jordan's eyes?".
ESPN's hit docuseries The Last Dance has cemented that fact in all our hearts and minds that Michael Jordan is a legend—but for some viewers, it's also started a discussion on Jordan's health.

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
However, VICE spoke to an ophthalmologist, who said he couldn't diagnose Jordan without assessing him personally"
"Yellow eyes should not be ignored because they are a sign of something more going on," Dr. Val Phua said, adding: "Yellowish discoloration of the eyes may be more obvious in a dark-skinned individual compared with someone who is fair-skinned."
However, making a very valid point, Express said that "Jordan’s eyes have looked yellow for the better part of the past two decades."

So there you have it folks, nothing to worry about.
