See doctor now.: Since this can be a serious condition which may lead to blindness of not treated promptly, go to see an ophthalmologist now. If necessary, go to the nearest ER. Don't waste another second.

Stye: Your description sounds like a stye, which is a simple boil of the eye typically treated with warm compresses 2-4 times daily for several days. Don't squeeze it. I recommend to all users of HealthTap that you not write in on behalf of others. It is best for continuity if your friend opens her own account so that her records can follow her should she have other questions or concerns in the future.
