A 26-year-old male asked:
i have a firm hardened chalazion on my upper left lid which has been inducing astigmatism on that eye for over six months now. if the chalazion is excised and removed then will my astigmatism resolve and my vision return to normal?

Possibly: If the only reason for the induced astigmatism, is a large chalazion, then removal ,might improve things. If the presence of the chalazion only made you aware of the presence of the astigmatism, then removal might not change things.
