A sty is often characterized by a painful lump near the edge of your eyelid. It can be on the top or bottom lid.
Common symptoms can include:
- A small painful bump near the edge of your eyelid
- Eye irritation
- Eyelid pain
- Eye tearing
Treatment of Stys
In most cases, a sty will go away on its own. A warm compress several times a day can help with the discomfort. Occasionally, an antibiotic or a referral to an ophthalmologist may be necessary.
If there are other concerning factors, you may need a more comprehensive evaluation. In some instances this can be performed by us through a video telemedicine visit and in some cases you will need an in person evaluation by a healthcare provider. During your evaluation, we will assess the most appropriate level of care for you and provide you with the information and treatment you need to start feeling better.
