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.
