How StyeGuy Works

General Questions

What is StyeGuy?

StyeGuy is a secure telemedicine platform that connects people with a board-certified ophthalmologist. StyeGuy enables you to receive a private consultation without needing to make an appointment, travel to a doctor’s office or wait around for the doctor to come to you. Our doctor uses your information and photos to provide you with a personalized Stye Treatment advice and if necessary, a prescription Antibiotic or Steroid will be called right into your pharmacy.
