A stye is a small spot in the root of an eyelash, which forms a small swelling on the inside or the outside of the lid. They are more common on the upper lid but can form on the lower lid too. Styes don’t cause any problems with vision and can occur at any age. A stye should be distinguished from another type of painful swelling in the eyelid, a chalazion, caused by enlargement of a blocked oil gland in the eyelid. A chalazion looks like a stye for the first few days but is further back from the edge of the lid. It then turns into a painless hard round bump that lingers for several weeks or even months.
