    You'd better not go to the beach because of the strong sun lights. You may say that you could wear the sunglasses with perfect polarized function. However the possibility of getting the eyes to be worse still exists. You should better wait for the stye recovery and go to the beach to have fun. The sty is commonly known as eye of a needle. The eyelid glands acute suppurative inflammation is often caused by a staph infection, depending on the affected gland tissue and divided into sty department within and outside. The eyelash hair follicle and sebaceous gland inflammation are in the sty for meibomian gland which is with acute suppurative inflammation. The eye stye may have the limited red swollen eyelids and thermal pain. The outer canthus part can be associated with the lateral bulbar conjunctiva oedema. After 3-5 days, pus point form will be shown outside the stye pus point on the skin surface. In order to cure the stye, you could use the eyes drops with anti-inflammation. At the same time, the home remedy of warm compress could help you. You could have a try. You need to eat more food with vitamin A and C to improve the eyes.

    Well, in my opinion, you should not go to beach when you suffer eye stye. As we know that a stye is inflammation of the eyelid, usually inside one of the small glands lining the eyelid. And generally speaking, most of styes are caused by infection from bacteria. So when you go to the beach, where there are several of bacteria. In that way, it can just make your situation more serious. And also, in some cases, it may lead to some other eye problems, such as red eyes. Anyway, you are not supposed to go to beach until your eye stye has been cured. And for the sake of infection, you can wear a pair of eye patch to protect your eyes.

    Yes, of course you can. Unlike pink eye, a stye is not contagious. Others won't be infected. Going to beach won't make your eye worse, as long as you don't swim, surf or do anything in the seawater. Keep away from seawater, then your eye won't be affected at all. You can do other things like lying on the beach instead.
