A stye or hordeolum is an infection of the sebaceous glands at the base of the eyelashes. Styes are similar to chalazia, but tend to be of smaller size and feel much more painful and usually produce no lasting damage.

Care should be taken to avoid touching the eye or sharing cosmetics, towels, or washcloths. Styes will last up to 3 weeks without treatment, with treatment up to a week.
