Your : Your description suggests a chalazion (commonly referred to as a stye). This is a non-infectious inflammation of oil-producing glands of the eyelid that typically occurs spontaneously (without a known trigger). A chalazion can be treated with warm compresses and prescription medications. Other possibilities include an inflammed cyst or even a cellulitis (skin infection) which must be excluded and, if present, treated. I recommend you contact your ophthalmologist for evaluation as soon as possible so you can start the proper treatment. ...Read more

My top tear duct is swollen and slightly painful to touch. There's no discharge and my eye isn't watery. Could this just be a blocked tear duct?

My top tear duct is swollen and slightly painful to touch. There's no discharge and my eye isn't watery. Could this just be a blocked tear duct?

Chalazion: These are very common. Use warm compresses to your eye 4 times a day for 15 minutes each. After a few weeks, it should completely resolve. One thing to watch out for is infection, which may cause draining of pus, or fevers and chills. If it gets this bad, you need to seek medical attention. Hang in there!! ...Read more
