Steven Suh, MD

On this episode Dr. George Chioran and Dr. Suh will be discussing bumps in the eyelids that may be acute or chronic. Chalazia and hordeola (styes), can greatly affect people when they occur because of the pain and swelling that can be present. They will talk about risk factors and what you can do to prevent these. Dr. Chioran will also review the different types of treatments that can be done from home and in the office. 

  • Warm compresses can be used to get rid of or help prevent these bumps. You can buy a commercially available eye compress here.  
  • These eyelid scrubs are non-abrasive cleansers that can help remove debris and bacteria from around the eyelashes and lid margins that can cause blepharitis and, ultimately, styes. 
  • This is an article from the American Academy of Ophthalmology about chalazion and styes.

Apocrine and epidermal inclusion cysts are also common bumps that can appear on the eyelids. They will discuss the causes and treatments of these lesions.   

You can find out more about Dr. Chioran and his practice at his website and on Facebook.
