Chalazion/Stye

Chalazion

A chazlazion is a slow growing inflamed bump on tear gland of the eyelid simular to a Stye only not painful.

 

It usually starts out feeling like a bead in the eyelid and over a few days or long will grow and become bigger, red and rubbery and in most cases remain painless.

 

If a chalazion doesn’t go away on its own after 6 weeks you may need to have it surgically removed.

 

Hordeolum

Styes are infections of the meibomian glands on the eye lids. It can usually leave a small pointy white tip like a pimple. 

 

Styes tend to be mildly sore when you put pressure on it. It can be managed with warm compresses or medication.
