Chalazia is a medical term for a chalazion; which is a developing lump that forms on the eyelid. It develops from a blockage and swelling of an oil gland in the eyelid. Although it’s much more common in adults than children; children do get the condition. If your child has symptoms, you should book an appointment with our Chalazia kids eye specialist in Hershey, Christianne Schoedel M.D.
A Chalazia might initially appear as a swollen, red, tender area of the eyelid but after a few days it changes to a very small, painless lump that is slow-growing but might grow to be the size of a pea.
