• Is It OK to Pop a Stye?


    If I pop the stye on my eye, will that cause more serious damage? Is it safe to pop it?


    No, it should not be "popped" for several reasons, and it may be a chalazion instead of a stye. Warm soaking of the inflamed area may speed healing, but if it persists, see an ophthalmologist.
