Hi Dr. Richardson, i was wondering if is there anyway to cure stye, because I have one under my right eye. Do I really need surgery to take care of it or is there some kind of eye drop or medication I can take? I really do wish it can be cured with just medication and/or eyedrops.

The treatment of a stye depends upon the clinical appearance of the stye under the clinical microscope (slit lamp). This requires an in-office exam. Not all styes require surgery. Some, however, do require prescription antibiotics.
I’ve copied one of my staff, Nancy, who will contact you to schedule an in-office consultation with me. Once I’ve seen the stye under magnification I should have the information I would need in order to provide you with the best method of treating it.
