The normal scleral color is white. However one looks at the sclera through the conjunctiva which may be slightly grey or tan or yellow and contains blood vessels. In addition, if the sclera is thinned , one may see a bluish slate color because of the underlying choroid.

Usually white but it can have some flecks of pigment in it and the color tends to get a bit ivory with age and time.
