In brief: Warm compresses
First step is to apply heat to your eyelid to melt the blockage causing the chalazion.
The best way is to boil an egg, wrap it in cloth and put it over the eye, 10 min on, 10 min off. You can also microwave a sock with rice in it and use it. Just make sure whatever you use stays hot for 10 minutes. If that doesn't work, have your eye doc drain it.
