What are the Causes?
There are a few reasons for the formation of lumps and bumps on and around the eyes / eyelids. Irregularities such as a stye or chalazion may be the result of inflammation or a blockage in the tear duct / oil glands. Basal cell carcinoma occurs when abnormal cells accumulate and mutate. Other non-malignant lumps may simply form from a build-up of fatty tissue beneath the skin.
What is the Diagnosis?
A Stye can be resolved through an application of Chloramphenicol 1% ointment, lid hygiene and warm compress. A warm compress and massage is also effective for chalazion, as well as surgical removal in persistent cases. Molluscum contagiosum is usually self-resolving by cleansing the eyelids with sterile wipes. Basal cell carcinoma will require invasive surgical removal following biopsy.
Choosing the right vision correction clinic for your surgery is paramount. This is a life changing procedure after all, and you need to have complete trust in your surgeon and care team of professionals.
