Cysts common: If your ophthalmologist was able to remove secretions from your cyst, you most likely had/have sebacious cysts. These are common, not serious, just annoying. They are filled with a "cottage cheese " like substance. They are a dermatologic condition that is most likely genetic. There is no way to prevent them:(.
