Minimally: A stye is a layman's word for chalazion, which as an ophthalmologist, is very commonly seen and treated on a daily basis. An injection of local anesthesia is administered, which is minimally uncomfortable ( similar to what a dentist would use ). Once the numbing has taken place, there should be zero discomfort during the brief procedure.
