    Well, first, you should know that a stye is inflammation of the eyelid, usually inside one of the small glands lining the eyelid. Most styes are caused by infection from bacteria. Of course, stress can also lead to an eye stye. This information comes from other people who have noticed their increased stress level bringing styes on. Also medical authorities have confirmed that stress can for example trigger the development of a stye. To treat it, the effective way you can do is just making sure your eyes are far from the bacteria, so that they can not be infected. Also, you should not be stressed. Having a good rest is also effective. also, you can drop some eye drops.
