What Is Eye Cysts (Chalazion)?

The underlying cause of chalazion is blepharitis and associated chronic eyelid inflammation, which leads to an obstruction at the opening of a Meibomian gland in the eyelid.

This results in a build-up of lipid within the gland. Colloquially, this is known as an eyelid style.

Treatment of an inflamed chalazion involves warm compresses four times a day for 15 minutes. However, many patients opt to have the chalazion excised surgically as a definitive procedure. This is a short, in-office procedure which is scarless as is it performed on the inner surface of the eyelid. It is carried out under local anaesthesia by a qualified ophthalmologist.
