Sometimes: This is called a chalazion and is the incysted remains of the eyelids battle with a stye. These are benign, can be small or large and will occasionally go away by themselves, especially if assisted by applied heat. If it bothers you, it can be removed in an office procedure which does require a little surgery. Some also might inject it with steroid which can also get rid of it. ...Read more

How long does a stye on your upper eyelid take to be removed if you go to the doctors? Does the doctor have to sleep your eye when they drain it?

It is a rather quick procedure in most cases. The doctor will numb your eyelid and then use tiny instruments to open the area of the stye and remove the stye. ...Read more

I suppose: The relief of the built-up pressure in the style, once drained, feels better & less pressure. Like a pimple on one's face, when popped, do you really hear it pop? I don't think so. As with sties, the only noise that I usually hear are those of pain, but not from the "popping" of the sty itself. ...Read more
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).

Warm compresses: A "stye, " a.K.A. Hordeolum, is a plugged oil gland in the eyelid, sort of like a pimple. Most of the time, it can be effectively treated with warm compresses. These loosen the oils and allow them to be expressed from the lid. If persistent, a hordeolum can become a chalazion, which often needs either a steroid injection or surgical excision. See an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more
