I have a stye coming...........been here before and just know that by tomorrow it will be in full force. My question is, is it worth shelling out on Brolene eye drops (or similar) or will it clear up just as well without help.

Any other advice is of course more than welcome...............old wives tales etc very welcome!

factor.....;-)
