In brief: Warm compresses

Some individuals have thicker secretions in these glands in the eyelids, and if you have had one cyst, you may be at higher risk for recurrance.
The regular use of warm compressed to the eyelids before bedtime and careful cleansing of the eyelid margins may help keep the ducts from clogging.
