A chalazion (also called a meibomian cyst) is a type of eyelid cyst that can appear on the upper or lower eyelid. It is caused by a blockage in an oil gland that keeps the surface of your eyes moist. We take a look at the condition, symptoms and treatments.
Typical chalazion symptoms can include:
If you have an eyelid cyst that has not cleared up after a month, then see your GP, who may prescribe antibiotic eye drops and ointment. They may also refer you to see an ophthalmologist to have the chalazion removed through minor surgery.
We can arrange a private appointment for you to visit a leading consultant ophthalmologist who specialises in eyelid cyst removal. They can closely assess your individual eye condition, and advise you about the most suitable treatment for you.
