    I've never heard that there is any kind of eye drops that can be used to treat a stye. However, you can try other ways to deal with your stye. A warm compress will be effective to treat a stye. You can soak a towel in warm water to make a warm compress. Then place the warm compress on your eyelid that is affected by a stye and leave it there for 10-20 minutes. Repeat doing this several times a day. I believe it can help you treat the stye effectively.

    I head that there is no "Stye" product and there is no medical basis for how it would help a stye. If you have a stye, warm compresses are the right way to treat you. And Rx [prescription] remedy is TOBRADEX eye drops that may help you, and this is also used for pink eye. they can react quickly. Anyway, you shall ask your eye doctor who knows better than others.
