Thanks for writing to us.
The yellow pigmentation of the sclera of the eye is a late symptom to resolve. Even if your jaundice is better, this discoloration is likely to persist for 4-6 weeks. You can consult a gastroenterologist for proper management.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
