What is an eyelid cyst?

An eyelid cyst, or chalazion (otherwise known as a Meibomian Cyst) is a painless, nodule within the eyelid formed by a blockage in the oil-secreting Meibomian glands. The lesion is not of a suspicious nature and many will resolve with conservative management. However, surgical resolution is a safe and routine procedure to perform when it is required.
