RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
You should try to increase your dependence on glasses while ditching contact lenses for a while, like more than a week, maybe that could help.
I have a bit of weakness in my eyesight, but prefer to wear glasses when needed, because of the problems contact lenses could cause, like allergy, the effect of heat on them and such.

I would switch to daily disposable contact lenses, it's less of a hassle and safer for your eyes.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
So I got a diagnose from an eye doctor. It's meibomianitis, a dysfunction of the glands on the eyelid rim that secret an oil that locks in the eyes' moisture. My glands are blocking, leading to the little bumps that I thought were styes. This creates dry eyes that can cause various issues like red eye and discomfort.

She gave me an eyelid wash that actually made the dryness worse and moisturizing eye drops which improved the symptoms but need to be re-applied every 4 hours or so. I did some research and my diet is probably a cause, so I stepped up my omega-3 intake with fish oil and flaxseed oil, which studies have shown can improve dry eye issues. Only issue is that it can take a month or longer to see improvement.

My thinking is that my eyelid glands are producing an inferior oil, so I need better oil inputs in my diet to change it.

I've been running game with prescription glasses nearly full time for about a month now, and am not getting a lower response from women. In clubs I wear glasses until I can acquire a target, and then take them off in the approach or while dancing. In day game I just keep them on. Girls say I look smarter but older with them.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
Quick tip for soothing styles. Don't bother heating up a towel and putting it on your eye, or buying a heating pad to put on it.

1. Assemble water, crock pot, epsom salts, 3-4 rags.
2. Put all ingredients in the pot on high.
3. Allow water to heat (half an hour or so).
4. Rotate using the wash rags on your eye. Use one for a minute, put it down, boom you've got a fresh towel right there. Stand over the crock pot to recycle the hot water.

A hippy chick also told me colloidial silver in the eye is a great homeopathic trick. I didn't try it...but next time...

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
In Australia you can get Chloromycetin eye ointment to shove into the eyes at night without a prescription for styes but not sure about where Roosh lives. Other than that it's keeping the area lubricated 3-4 times a day. Hopefully he can get to the root cause of it, maybe an underlying health condition? Hopefully not.

Roosh have you tried making your own silver water and flushing your eyes with it?

This is what I do for my stomach and sinuses works like a charm.

Can get a silver generator online for around $300.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
I get these from time to time, and I don't wear glasses or contacts. I heard that rubbing your nose and then your eyes can cause these too.

I haven't had one in over a year (knock on wood) but I wash my eyes daily with a wash cloth and baby shampoo. I don't know if this helps in prevention or not.

The bad thing is these are TERRIBLE to look at and I'm self conscious about them. The last couple I have had I used a warm wash cloth and compressed for while and then I will pop it. I know that's a big no-no but I'm impatient and these things can ruin your week.

Yup, with every new bottle of lens solution.

Conjunctivitis, which is one of the causes of meibomianitis (inflammation of the tarsal glands), is a contraindication for lasik. Do not risk it!

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
Are you wearing hard lenses or soft lenses? I had hard lenses for one year and it was miserable. Otherwise I'd suggest testing different brands of solution. I use revitalens even though its harder to find, but opti-free bugs my eyes. And odds are it isn't hygiene, because if it were I'd be blind by now. Also, if you're sleeping with them in, try taking them out at night. I know the new ones are supposed to be oxygen permeable or whatever, but I still wake up with eye snot if I leave them in overnight.

Roosh you still having this issue?

I went no contacts (glasses) for a while and things got better. I wore contacts for the first time in like a month last night...holy shit my eyes got dry, then I woke up with a tiny stye in the same place I've been getting one.

Edit: I finally got those OcuSoft wipes TK recommends, they're great! I think i just need to keep using them.

Can't recommend LASIK highly enough. Not only have I gotten rid of chronic issues with dry eye and styes, but also (just as big) the mental tax of buying/packing/wearing glasses and contacts.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
While I don't know how to prevent them, a dilute solution of boric acid in warm water is an old fashioned but effective treatment for styes. I used to get them all the time as a kid, and it worked well.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
With contacts try a peroxide solution at night redbeard. I'd ask the doctor first but it clears up protein build up on lens and should help. Its a little complicated at first since the solution has to neutralize before you can put the contacts back in. You do it overnight. If the solution hits your eyes before its neutralization it will hurt like hell. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_p..._solutions
The doctor can explain this better though. If that doesn't work there are contacts with higher moisture content, but they are pricey which is probably what your going to need do.

I got lasik like 5 months ago or so, and it's fantastic, but I never had dry eyes in my life before lasik, and now I do have to use lubricating eye drops three times a day.

It's awesome, though, it's much better than wearing glasses or contacts, but it is a daily thing that has to get done.

They have been getting less and less dry as time goes by, though, initially I had to use drops like 6 times a day, now I'm down to 3. Apparently after 3 to 9 months most folks return to pre-lasik eye dryness, the months vary depending on the source.

We'll see, but I would do it again if I could go back, it's just so much better to not have to use mental space on glasses/contacts. The drops don't really use mental space because you pack them once in your backpack and you're set for two months or so until you need to refill.

It's great to be able to make love and then not think, "Should I take off my contacts now and go to bed, or do I feel like going another round?" I mean, sure, I could have relations without the contacts, and I could see fine close up (I can't see far), but it's just not the same knowing you can't see in detail at a distance.

Going to the pool is no longer a "I hope my contacts don't come out" experience.

All in all, lasik's great, I should have done it years ago, and braces are great too, I should have also done it years ago. All good, enjoying the process and the results (so far) of both!

Doesn't LASIK make dry eyes worse?

This is exactly why I haven't done it yet, I have dry eyes and the procedure exacerbates the condition, I've read horror stories about it and don't want to risk it.

Yeah, I'd be cautious if you already have issues and it makes them worse, as life could be very, very bad in that scenario. Where I'm at right now I'm very comfortable with things, but it is odd to be dependent on eye drops. As long as the dryness doesn't get worse, I'm 100% ok with things.

And hopefully in a decade or two or three there will be some more advances that may help with things. For now, all is well on my end, I'm super happy about it, but yeah, be careful.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
I recently got a stye in my left eye. Holy Shit! I stupidly didn't think much about it the first day when the lower lid of my eye was a little puffy. I took a nap, took a little ibuprofen and thought it would be get better as most things on the body get better that way. Woke up with a huge boil looking thing under my eye, encrusted with gunk.

Things that have helped it a lot:

1. Get a hand towel or handkerchief and a small pan. Get the water very hot in the pan. I add some salt to the water, since that should help the wound. I then keep a warm, wet towel on my eye for 10-15 mins. I also put a black tea bag in a cup and put that on my eye for a few minutes. Feels much better. ***important, Staph infections, which are the kind with styes, can infect other things so each time you use a towel, a pillow case, a handerchief, put that into the washing machine with bleach. You do not want to cross infect or reinfect anything. *****

2. Baby shampoo really works to clean the eye out of all that shit that builds up. When the eye ducts aren't working right then oil and weird eye shit builds up, plus the eye is tearing more than usual. Wash that shit out several times a day.

3. Oral antibiotics and antibiotic eye drops are your friend. DAY ONE, go to the doctor and get medicated up asap. Don't let this shit run away on you, period.

4. Things that are said to be helpful: turmeric, apple cider vinegar. Both are anti-inflammatories and your eye will be inflamed.

5. I have prescription sunglasses thankfully so I wear them almost all day except at night when its too dark in my apartment. Otherwise just block out the sun, chill out. Indoors, outdoors, wherever.

Right now Im at day 4-5 and its still damn shitty. I didn't get to it in time so it got bad in a couple days. Now in 2 days I will go back and if not getting better maybe the doctor will lance it. DO NOT break the stye yourself, that bacteria can get into your blood and blind you or other terrible things. Let medical professionals do things like that.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
Has anyone on this forum ever had a Chalazion?

It's a type of stye that hardens and is very tough to get rid of.

I've had one now on my upper left eyelid for six months and it's been steadily growing. It's the biggest and most sore it's ever been. I have been referred for the operation to have it removed as hot compresses were tiresome and only seemed to be making it look more inflamed.

I had been wearing disposable contact lenses but not anymore. I also suspect the chalazion is caused by dry eyes from too much computer use.

It's been getting me down as it looks gross and I'm not really able to date or go on vacation. My life is on hold waiting to get rid of this damn thing.

RE: Recurring styes in eyes?
Yes my post above was a chalazion. Terrible shit.

I had recurring chalazion from bad dry eye, which was mgd. Meibomian gland dysfunction.

I had one upper chalazion removed. They inverted my upper lid and sliced into it. Pussed out for several days. Nasty. Healed well.

I had one lower near my nose, inner area. That had to be incised from the outside.

Have you been treating that with Azithromycin. Get the strongest dose of azithromycin you can and take it for 2-3 weeks. They will go away.

Its an infected meibomian gland. That infection needs to be killed so antibiotics help.

The problem is of course, why did it start.

You need to see a dry eye doctor asap and get a lipiview or something like it, to view your meibomian glands. If they are getting infected and inflamed something is wrong, potentially very seriously wrong.

Incision does work but antibiotics are necessary. More necessary is seeinf a specislist that has an Oculus meibography or a Lipiview to see what is going on with your meibomian glands.

One thing to start asap is hypocholoric acid spray on the eyelids everyday to kill bacteria.

I will write more later. Take care and start azithromycin antibiotics tomorrow and see a det eye specialist.

I'm on a strong dose of antibiotics right now and waiting for the procedure which I'm told is happening next month.

Problem is I have yet to see an eye doctor. Just a GP. The waiting lists to see an eye professional are long. I've been battling with this now for 6 months but it's been really bad for 3 months. I'm very frustrated.
