Symptoms of Chalazion

Symptoms of Chalazion: Introduction

A chalazion occurs due the blockage of the duct that drains a meibomian gland in the eyelid, which produces an oily eye lubricant. This results in the typical symptoms of chalazion, including a bump on the eyelid, swelling, and a reddened appearance of near the edge of the affected eyelid. Either the upper or the lower eyelids can be affected by a chalazion.

Symptoms can also include pain or tenderness of the eyelid, sensitivity to light (photosensitivity) and increased tearing. In some cases, there may be no pain.

Astigmatism and blurred vision can occur if the chalazion grows large enough to press on the eye. Other complications of a chalazion include a secondary bacterial infection of the eyelid. Symptoms can include increased swelling, redness, pain in the eyelids and possibly fever....more about Chalazion »
