When the Meibomian oil gland on the eyelid gets blocked, it causes a small bump known as a Chalazion. The symptoms usually include tenderness on the eyelid, blurry vision, blocked vision, increased tears in the eyes, and sensitivity to bright glares of light.
HOW IS CHALAZION DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis of the issue will be done by the Ophthalmologist who will basically conduct a physical examination in order to check whether the growth is a stye or a chalazion.
HOW IS CHALAZION TREATED?
Steroid drops and other oral medication will be prescribed by the Ophthalmologist to help in gradually clearing the lump from the eyelid. Also, a warm compress is recommended as well as constant washing. A warm compress can help in softening and draining the lump. If these methods do not help it go away in a month, surgery will have to be conducted.
