What is a Chalazion?
A chalazion is typically a firm rubbery nodule in the eyelid caused by a blockage of a tiny oil gland.
What are my treatment options for Chalazion?
Treatment options include warm compresses and medicated ophthalmic ointment, along with oral antibiotics in some cases.
This may soften the hardened oils blocking the duct, and promote drainage and healing. If the chalazion continues to enlarge, it may need to be treated with other medications or be removed with an in office surgery. This is usually done from inside the eyelid to avoid a scar on the skin.
