About Chalazion or Stye
A chalazion or a stye is an infected bump that appears on the edge of your eyelid. Closely resembling a pimple, a stye happens when the small oil glands around the eyelashes become blocked with dead skin cells, oil, skin, or dirt. Stye symptoms may include swelling, discharge, light sensitivity, foreign object sensation, weepiness, tenderness, and crustiness. Unfortunately, styes can grow externally and internally on your eyelid and usually require professional treatment if at-home remedies don’t seem to work or you commonly experience them. To accurately diagnose your condition, please schedule a consultation with our Lake Worth, FL eye doctors to learn more. We also proudly serve our Delray Beach, FL community for their eye care needs. Our South Florida ophthalmologists at Palm Beach Eye Center can provide a range of stye treatments for your needs.

How is a stye treated?
A stye can cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. If you begin to experience discomfort and swelling because of a stye, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment with us. In some cases, patients can relieve the symptoms with at-home treatments, such as using a warm compress on the eye for 10 – 15 minutes, around five times per day. However, you may still have symptoms that do not completely clear up. A stye can impact your daily life and may even prevent you from using contacts or makeup. At Palm Beach Eye Center, we offer several eye stye treatment options to fit your needs. During a consultation at our Lake Worth, FL eye care facility, we can assess your condition and prescribe antibiotics to improve the issue.
