we can not take a picture it is not very big.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Stevens, Ophthalmologist replied 8 years ago
What he has is a blockage oil gland that normally releases oils to the surface of the eye to help lubricate the eye and stabilize the tear film. Anyhow, if it gets bigger, it will be referred to as a hordeolum or stye. Get a heat pack, not a wash cloth (since those cool down fast) and apply it to the lid at least 3 times a day for 5 minutes at a time, and it will go down or open up and drain. It may take 1-2 weeks for it to go away. If it becomes too tender or the lid swells significantly, he may be getting an abcess, and needs to see an eye doctor. Do the heat packs tonight and this hsould help since thsi just came up, Regards, ***** *****
