A chalazion, sometimes referred to as a "stye," is a bump on the eyelid caused by a clogged oil gland. These bumps are very common and can affect almost anyone at any age. A chalazion is not harmful, but can sometimes appear similar to cancerous lesions of the eyelid, so a proper evaluation is important. Most chalazions will go away on their own. Often times, we prescribe eye drops or ointments to help with this. When medications fail, we also offer a variety of minimally invasive procedures to cure the problem. These procedures are done from an interior approach so that there will be no incision or scars on the outside of the eyelid, maintaining a pristine cosmetic approach.
