Styes Overview

StyesThe eye is surrounded by small oil-producing glands that help lubricate the eye. Occasionally, a gland becomes plugged and hard, forming a chalazion (ch lae zee on) and, at other times the gland becomes infected, in which case the resulting abscess is called a stye (sti).

Symptoms

A stye can cause one or more of the following symptoms:

  • pain
  • redness
  • excess tearing
  • blurred vision
  • granular sensation in the eye
  • oozing pus, which can spread to other areas around the eyes
  • Treatment

Luckily, most styes stay small and are just a minor annoyance. They can be treated at home with warm compresses applied directly to the eye several times a day. They often resolve on their own within a few days. Styes that become more infected can be treated with antibiotics.

In the worst cases, styes can be surgically drained and/or removed in the doctor’s office.
