Hello :)

I'm 44, and I have been getting styes since I was 16, so nearly 30 years. I've had at least 25 styes, and every single one of them have sucked. I've woken up so many times with a new stye, and my whole eye is a giant purple bag, with a second red bag under that. I've had styes that turn into hard little pearl type things too, the ones that feel like a piece of sand scraping against your eyeball every time the eye blinks, which is pretty much constant and out of control. I've had a real bad time with these buggers.

I used to spend hours with the warm/hot compresses, and cleaning the lash lines with q-tips and baby shampoo. Those things do help, at least for me. But, still, every stye I had ever had was really bad and stuck around for at least 2 weeks. I have scars along my lash lines from styes, and my digging at them with needles, because I couldn't take the pain and the pressure any longer. I've also used a needle to dig the pearl/sand ones out. When they're bad they make me feel sick. And I have truely suffered with styes.

Then, in early 2009, I picked up a bottle of this, and really, it's been a miracle. As soon as I realize I've got a stye, I start using these drops, and within 2 days it's gone. Not just better, completely gone. I have been using this same bottle for almost 4 years now. I am, of course, super careful to keep it sanitary. My bottle here, actually expired in August of 2010. I probably shouldn't still use it, and that's why I'm here, is to get a new bottle. But, it still works! Not that I'm suggesting anyone use expired products, just saying.

So YES, this product works very, very well for me. I highly recommend it to others. I doubt it could work for every single person, and on every single stye. But, it has to be worth a try for anyone who is battling this prioblem.

Also, I'm pretty sure I'm getting styes less often, and I have not woken up with purple elephant eye either, since I started using the drops. I believe if I keep using them at the very 1st sign, that I will get fewer and fewer styes in the future. Woo Hoo! Sorry so long! Hope it helps someone! Peace <3

I recently had a stye for the first time in years. As soon as I realized it was a stye, I headed to the local drugstore and bought this product (I wish I had been able to wait on the product from Amazon because it would've been much cheaper). I alternated between these drops and a warm compress and my stye was GONE THE FOLLOWING DAY!!! No stye, no pain, no redness, no irritation. I was/am amazed.

I get recurrent styes and the usual healing time is about 7 days with warm compresses and antibiotic eye drops that are mostly preventative but do not accelerate healing. I tried Similasan and found no change in the healing time or relief. Too bad, it did not work. I can use a faster healing time since I get them at least once a year.

All I can say is WOW!!! I wish I had known about this product years ago!

Last week while on my way home from work I felt the discomfort in my eye start. "Just great: I thought" as I was getting prepared for a week and a half or so of misery that I usually encounter when I get a stye. The next morning when I woke up , I saw the tell tale tiny whitehead on my eyelid. While on my way to work that morning, I popped into Duane Reade to see if there was anything over the counter that would help. That's when I came across this.

It was pricey as hell - Duane Reade charged close to $15.00 for it. I was hesitant to buy it, especially at that price. Being a homeopathic product I assumed that it would do next to nothing. I reluctantly purchased it - I am so glad that I decided to do so!!

I started applying it as soon as I got to work, and kept applying it every few hours. It did help the itching quite a bit immediately.

When I woke up the next day, the whitehead was slightly larger. I applied it again, and brought it to work with me so I could keep applying it throughout the day. As the day progressed the head got larger and the discomfort got worse. After my workday ended, I did my normal routine on the weekend - take the train to Times Square and then walk from 42St to 14St in order to get some exercise and take in the sights. When I got off the train, my eye was BAD! My vision was blurry and it was really irritated. I stopped off to grab something to drink, and applied the drops again. at this point, the stye was HUGE!! During the train ride home I was in total agony - every time I blinked I was in alot of discomfort.

When I got home, the stye was even larger than what it was just an hour or so earlier. Applied the drops again. About two hours later, the stye burst and drained!! Instant relief!! I applied the drops again throughout the night, and again the next day.

It could have been total coincidence, but I don't think so. Every time i get a stye, I experience the discomfort for a week and a half to two weeks minimum. Using this product reduced it to only a few days. Will this product work for everyone? Probably not. But it definitely worked for me, and I am now buying another bottle to keep on hand for when I get another one.

If you are prone to getting styes, pick up a bottle of this beforehand in order to save some money. As I mentioned, Duane Reade in NYC charges just under $15.00 for this. But even if you do wait until you develop a stye and pay full price for this, you will find out like I did that it is $15.00 well spent if it works for you!!

This stuff is awesome. I had a stye suddenly appear on a Friday evening. It wasn't horrible but bad enough. Saturday I suffered with dry eyes and typical irritation from a stye. I bought these from the drugstore after reading Amazon reviews and started using them Saturday evening. I used them more than it said to, but I figured it wouldn't hurt. By Sunday morning I was already better and now it's Sunday night and I notice even more difference. I can still feel it and it hurts a little but it's getting better faster than I think it would have without these drops. I didn't think the price was that bad considering how well it works for a such an annoying and painful thing as a stye. I paid about $10 at the drugstore.

24 hours later and I am a human again. I used this in tandem with warm compresses and I used the drops whenever the style started to irritate my eye again, stayed away from looking at the computer, used no makeup or contact lenses and drank lots of water. Life was only ruined for one day thanks to this product. This stuff is really amazing! Get it!

I love this line of products. Their allergy relief, pink eye relief and stye relief do just what they say. One small complaint. When I ordered two of these, I was shipped items that expired in a couple of months. That was disappointing.

I read some reviews that this "removes" styes. Well really it dosnt. It relieves some of the strain, I would definatly recomend it over the gel products. I had 2 styes. Well they get out of control. The two, multiplied into four. After using a bottle of this the first two went away. But yet I am still using and it seems they just wont go away. I even use a warm compress over my eyes everyday, and their just multiplying. Guess ill be getting them surgically removed. Anyways, this product is the best OTC help you can get for styes.

I get stayes like every year, and they itch, and they look bad. It typically takes 2 to 3 weeks for them to go away on their own, but with this, it only took a few days. Amazing!

I get styes every once in awhile because of ocular rosacea. This is where your eye rims are red, show veins and you can get styes on your upper and/or lower lids. This medicine helps relieve the redness and swelling of the stye so it helps it to go away in a few days.
