There may be other procedures that can help besides surgery - ask a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic dermatologist for recommendations. I have had a stye in my lower right eyelid for over a year, so I know what you are talking about with the funny looks, etc. The opthalmologist told me mine was too big to do surgery, so I just have to wait for it to go away on its own (which it isn't doing). Good luck,
