Stye Eye Relief Really Works!
on December 6, 2012
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
