BUMP ON THE EYE

A chalazion is a bump on the lid that is non-tender and non-infectious.  It arises because of stagnation of secretions from a clogged meibomian glands.  It is initially treated with aggressive hot compresses and steroid drops.  Sometimes steroid is injected into it.  Often, if these measures don’t work, it has to be removed surgically.  This is not painful as the surgeon numbs the eye.
