Eyelid Bump Treatment for Chalazion

What Causes Eyelid Bumps?

Have you noticed a swollen bump on your eyelid? This is called a chalazion. It happens when the eyelid’s oil gland clogs up. In some cases, these eyelid bumps may start as an internal hordeolum or stye.

What Symptoms Are Caused by a Bump on the Eyelid?

At first, you might not know you have a chalazion as there is typically little or no pain. But as it grows, your eyelid may get red, swollen, and sometimes tender to touch. If the chalazion gets large, it can press on your eye and cause blurry vision. In rare cases, the whole eyelid might swell.

How Are Eyelid Bumps Treated?

If your chalazion affects your vision or does not go away, you may need to have it drained. This surgery is usually done in the eye doctor’s office using local anesthesia. If a chalazion keeps coming back time after time, your ophthalmologist may biopsy it. This is where a tiny piece of tissue is removed and studied. This helps your ophthalmologist check to see if there is a more serious eye problem.
