Chalazion or Meibomian cyst is the most common inflammatory lesion of the eyelid. It is caused by the non-infective basis obstruction of a meibomian gland. The obstruction produces a build-up of irritating lipidic compounds in surrounding lid tissues with consequent inflammation.
On occasion, a chalazion may enlarge and pass through the tarsal plate to the external part of the eyelid.
Early diagnosis and treatment are essential so that chalazion does not develop chronic complications or evolve in other serious inflammatory lesions such as stye.
High thermal impact and therefore IPL is not to be used. The treatment consist of an application with the standard supply red light mask. Red light stimulates ATP by increasing and improving cellular activity, it reduces inflammation and oedema and works on meibomian glands.
