iron deficency anemia, infections, too much carotine in your blood (carotenema), fatty deposits (xanthelasma), jaundice (not likely because its bright orange and you mentioned nothing about your skin or the whites of your eyes being discolored as well). Go to your doctor.

Orange under eyelids
Has anyone figured out how to get rid of this? I have had it for over 2 years and I am feeling fine and think that I am very healthy. I am going to see my doctor next month and ask about it...but thought I would check to see if anyone found an answer. Thanks!

Orange discolouration of upper eyelids
I too suffer from an orange discolouration of my upper eyelids. I did suffer from anaemia, but that's fine now but I still look as though I'm wearing orange eyeshadow when I am NOT! This has been occurring for at least the past 4-5 years. I have seen three doctors and they don't have any ideas but have checked my liver, thyroid and goodness knows what else ... but all blood test results come back as 'normal'. I don't think I'll ever know what it is, or how to eradicate it (unfortunately) Sad
