A Chalazion is the term used to describe an enlarged Meibomian Gland, containing retained secretory products secondary to chronic inflammation and an obstructed gland orifice.
A Chalazion is usually present as a painless and firm swelling within the eyelid.
Chalazion often respond in the acute stage to conservative treatment consisting of daily applied hot compresses for 10-15 minute duration, followed by drainage of the retained material through the gland orifice.
In chronic cases, however, the Chalazion does not respond to such treatment and will need to be incised and curetted.
In such cases, the Chalazion Clamp is invaluable as a means of fixing the inverted eyelid to enable incision and minimising intra-operative bleeding.
