Pretty much only if you share it with other people or touch the tip with your fingers when they aren't really clean.
The eyes are a very easy vector for infection. Don't share your eyedrops, and make sure you keep them well sealed and don't touch the open tip against anything.

A doctor can't really help you with styes.. I've had them before, they're a bitch. Make yourself warm compresses with camomille tea bags. Remember, not too hot or you'll cause damage... but the heat, if applied correctly, will localize the infection. A bit of antibiotic ointment might help, but otherwise all you can do is wait it out and use hot compresses.
It depends on the cause. If it's an infection causing it a doctor can help with prescription drops.
Boric acid based solutions can help relieve the discomfort too.
