What is chalazion?
A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage in the oil glands known as meibomian glands in the eyelid. A chalazion is characteristically painless, slowly increasing nodule on the eyelid. The meibomian glands are the glands that produce the fluid that lubricates the eye.
