Wear eye makeup to bed or don't wash your face well and you may wind up with pimple-like styes on your eyelids. The bumps don't typically lead to vision loss, but can cause scarring if not treated. Dr. Karen Dunlap, assistant professor of ophthalmology at The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins, said that it is easy to prevent eye styes. What is a stye and what are the symptoms? A stye, also known as an external hordeolum, is a localized infection in one of the oil glands at the edge of the eyelid.

Q: My son has a recurring stye in his right eye. How should we treat it and, better yet, prevent it? A: A stye is a common condition and often appears as a red lump near the edge of the eyelid. It occurs when an oil gland in the eyelid becomes infected. It is usually slightly painful, especially when touched. A related condition is a chalazion. A chalazion occurs when this oil gland becomes clogged with oil. Chalazia are usually farther away from the margin of the eyelid, are not painful and are usually larger than styes.

When Liane Lefever complained to her doctor about a persistent ear ache, an examination found a much more serious problem: a brain tumor. For many Americans, that diagnosis could have led to invasive surgery — including slicing open her skull — and a long recovery. But with an innovative procedure being pioneered by two doctors from Johns Hopkins Hospital, her tumor was removed through a small incision in her eyelid. "When you tell people you had brain surgery, the first thing people always do is look for a scar, and that's what's amazing, there isn't one," said Lefever, 47, who lives in Manheim, Pa. "Anyone who needs to go through this should know it's not that big of a deal even if it sounds like it is."

As a child, I would sometimes pull my right eyelid up, bunch it together and hold it in place. It wasn't until I'd been doing that subconsciously for years that I realized my looks weren't going to change. No matter what I did, I'd always have an eyelid with a crease on my left and a flat lid on the right. Which wasn't the end of the world, I knew. Still, the beautiful women I saw on magazine covers and TV shows, from Cindy Crawford to Lisa Bonet on The Cosby Show, all had gorgeous large eyes.

NEW YORK - She can't help herself - she's watching out of the corner of her eye. Vicki Mabrey is sitting in a dark, windowless meeting room on the eighth floor of an office building on Manhattan's West Side. Colleagues sit nearby in padded chairs salvaged from an old movie theater. A story on the political activism of U2 rocker Bono that Mabrey has submitted for CBS' "60 Minutes II" is airing on a wide-screen television. But she keeps glancing over at the end of a long conference table, set behind the theater seats, where a single banker's lamp stands.

Blepharitis, usually identified by a sufferer's red, irritated eyelids, is becoming more common. And while doctors aren't sure why, it can be controlled with vigilance, according to Dr. Laura K. Green, residency program director of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery at the Krieger Eye Institute at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. She said there are some simple things sufferers can do at home, such as keeping the eyelids clean, that can help ease the irritation. What is blepharitis and what causes it?

It's 1:28 a.m. at the American Legion Post No. 39 in Bel Air. Eyes are drooping and heads are bobbing. The Coke pitchers have run dry, and the cheddar squares vanished from a silver platter hours earlier, leaving only the jalapeno cheese squares. A candidates forum began 6 1/2 hours ago, with the endorsement of the local Fraternal Order of Police at stake. Over the course of a long, strange night, four dozen candidates expounded on issues that included traffic congestion, law enforcement and gay marriage.

Though still being bothered by a lacerated right eyelid, running back Willis McGahee participated fully in practice yesterday for the first time this week and is expected to be available for the Ravens' showdown with the reigning AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. Speaking before yesterday's practice for the first time since suffering the injury Sunday, McGahee sounded noncommittal about whether he would be able to play against the Steelers. "I don't know how it's going to be, to tell you the truth," said McGahee, who wore sunglasses but is listed as probable on the team's injury report.

Still, even in his blunted features, agony has found a way to express itself. The young man's suffering is captured in the flickering black-and-white images of a grainy tape filmed in a Texas hospital 25 years ago.Once, Donald Cowart was an Air Force pilot who flew jets in and out of Vietnam; a handsome, strong-willed man with a passion for driving fast in his Alfa Romeo.
