"Hi, I'm Dr. Bruce Dornn from Eye-Revive.ca… a common question in my office is what are styes? And, what causes styes?

Styes are really a focal infection or a blockage of one of the small glands in the eyelid margin… generally the meibomian glands. One of these glands will get blocked or infected and it'll back up and you’ll have a large… at first painful lump on the eyelid margin - the eye will generally swell and it can be quite painful at first. Generally, if it's left untreated it will become… after weeks or months even, become a large painless lump that at times may have to be excised to be treated. It is very important that when you develop a sty that it be treated as soon as possible to have the best outcome.
