Rec. Epith. Erosions: Recurrent epithelial erosions occur when the basement membrane of the corneal epithelium heals irregularly following a corneal abrasion. Nightly lubrication with bland or hypertonic saline ointment for 6 months or more is curative, but with even one recurrence the clock goes back to day zero.

Gland swelling at below right eye lid. No pain, but it is red. What is the remedy for it. One doctor prescribed for surgery treatment.

Gland swelling at below right eye lid. No pain, but it is red. What is the remedy for it. One doctor prescribed for surgery treatment.

Wait!: There are small glands (meibomian glands) on the inside of the eyelids that secrete a lubricant & can sometimes get blocked up and swell. But there are no glands below the eyelids. If you don't have eye pain, redness or loss of vision, then watchful waiting for a few days is safer than immediate but possibly unnecessary surgery. Warm compresses and antibiotics may help the healing process. ...Read more

Often, : Often, a series of hot compresses during the day will work, with shorter duration for each compress. Many of my patients have success with 3 or 4 compresses, 5-10 minutes each session. The potato works well, some patients have mentioned that they have used a hard-boiled egg the same way. This holds heat longer than using a washcloth alone. If this does not work within a week or so, then eye drops, or surgical removal will be successful. See your eye doctor if compresses fail! ...Read more
