What are styes and why do they form?
Styes are red, swollen bumps that can form near the edge of the upper or lower eyelid and usually develop as a result of a staphylococcal infection. Styes may or may not be painful, and they usually don’t affect your vision. They normally go away on their own after a few days and rarely require treatment. Styes are different from chalazia.
