A stye is a bump or pimple that forms on the eyelid as a result of a blocked gland, according to MedicineNet. They can form from a blocked sweat gland or sebaceous gland on the eyelid.

At eMedicineHealth, there are two images of actual styes. One image is of a patient with both upper and lower styes, while the other image shows a child with a stye on the lower eyelid.
