What is a chalazion?  What is the treatment for a chalazion?

 

A chalazion is the granulation of tissue around a gland. A chalazion is a hard, non-tender, non-inflamed nodule in the eyelid. This can be caused by a previous stye or hordeolum. Chalazions will often disappear over a few months without treatment. However, they often required steroid injections and/or surgical removal. These procedures can be done in office with local anesthesia.

 

Treatment

Hot compresses for 10 minutes 3-4 times per day

Steroid injection by your eye doctor

Surgical removal by your ophthalmologist
