Stye And Chalazion Eye Inflammation

A stye, or hordeolum, is a nodule of inflammation that forms a bump in the eyelid and is associated with a bacterial infection. A stye usually begins to form when an oil gland in the eyelid margin becomes clogged. A pocket of bacterial infection, or an abscess, then develops in the clogged oil gland. Very rarely, the infection can spread from the eyelid to other parts of the face. Persons with blepharitis are especially prone to developing styes.

In contrast to a stye, a chalazion is a nodule of inflammation that forms a bump in the eyelid without associated infection. Chalazia tend to be present longer than styes, and they are usually less tender and red. Some styes develop into chalazia after the body clears the infection but not the inflammation.

Symptoms You May Experience:
With a stye, you will notice a bump in your eye lid that develops over several days. The bump is usually tender and red. With a chalazion, the bump that forms in your eyelid will often take longer to form. It is usually only slightly tender to the touch and is less red than a stye. Your vision may be slightly blurred if the chalazion presses on your eyeball, causing astigmatism (an irregular curvature of the cornea)...
