How can we help?


A chalazion, also known as a meibomian cyst, is a firm round lump in the upper or lower eyelid caused by a chronic inflammation or blockage of the meibomian gland. It can sometimes be mistaken for a stye. It can become acutely infected, otherwise it may settle by itself. It could cause eyelid tenderness, and heaviness of the eyelid.

Instructions on how to apply a warm compress which can be used to increase drainage of the affected gland will form part of treatment, as well as instructions on how to gently massage after warm compress to help to express the contents of the cyst

If acutely inflamed, antibiotic ointment might be prescribed.
If conservative measures fail, chalazia can be treated by surgical incision followed by curettage of the retained secretions and inflammatory material under local anaesthetic.
