Chalazion Information

aao-H02-300x201Chalazions (“small pimples” in Greek) are cysts, or fluid-filled sacs, on the edge of the eyelid. Small glands in the eyelids called meibomian glands normally secrete a thick, fatty fluid called sebum into the hair follicles of the eyelashes. When these glands become chronically inflamed, chalazions – also called meibomian cysts – form.

Dr. Nguyen usually treats chalazions by prescribing antibiotic eye drops, antibiotic lid scrubs, and warm compresses. If the lesion is chronic and/or not resolving, she may also recommend a 5-10 minute minor procedure to release the sebum trapped inside the cyst.
