how long has the cyst been on the eyelid?
is the cyst painful?
there are benign cysts called styes which can form on the bottom of the eye lid, close to the lashes and be sore and painful.
these sytes are caused by viral infection and touching the eye.
but will go away in time and do not need an eye surgery.
things like warm compresses on the eye and extra sleep and rest can help.
have you tried any warm compresses on your eye?
have you tried to get extra sleep and rest
and take extra vitamin C in fruits and vegetables to improve your immune system
to help get rid of this stye on your eyelid?
did you see my response and questions above?
you can return back to the eye doctor to drain the cyst.
they can stick a small needle into the cyst and drain it and help the infection come out.
you don't necessarily have to have surgery as the first thing for a benign cyst of the eye lid.
these styes tend to be caused by viral infections.
and so anti-viral medications like acyclovir could help as well.
yes, you should try another eye doctor
it sounds like that private eye doctor all he wants to do is surgery which makes him more money.
