Treatments for Chalazion

Treatments for Chalazion:

With a good, consistent treatment plan, the prognosis for most cases of chalazion is good with minimal risk of serious complications, such as blurred vision or bacterial infection.

Treatment of chalazion begins with diagnosing and treating any underlying conditions, such as rosacea, skin cancer, chronic blepharitis, and meibomian gland dysfunction.

A small chalazion will frequently go away by itself within one or two months. To expedite the natural healing process and keep the area clean, the only treatment needed in many cases is gently cleansing with water and applying warm, moist compresses several times a day. It may be recommended that eye makeup is not worn until the chalazion heals. At that time all makeup and cosmetics should be replaced by new make-up.

For a large chalazion or a chalazion that has become infected, an antibiotic ointment may be prescribed to be applied to the eyelid after washing. A corticosteroid drug in eye drop form may also be prescribed to relieve inflammation.

In some cases, surgery may be recommended to remove the chalazion. Surgery involves numbing the area with a local anesthetic and making a small incision to remove the contents of the chalazion.

It is not unusual for a chalazion to recur, so it is important to seek regular follow-up medical care as recommended. Follow-up care will also re-evaluate the eyes and eyelids for the development of complications, such as bacterial infection or blurred vision. If there is a change in vision, immediate medical care is needed.
