Can stye cause blindness?

Stye itself can not cause blindness. In general, stye on the eye is a disease that in most cases goes by itself without any treatment. However, if the patient initially starts to treat this illness incorrectly, also tries to squeeze out stye, complications are possible. For example, purulent conjunctivitis. In this process, the pathogen of stye, penetrating from the focus of suppuration in the tissues of the eye, causes severe inflammation, which, if the therapy is not correct, can lead to complete blindness.

Remember: do not try to squeeze out stye by yourself! If the disease is acute, with suppuration and swelling, you should consult a doctor. He will give you the right treatment or decide to remove the stye surgically.
