What are eyelid lumps and can they cause complications that will affect my vision or create any other health problems?
There are various types of eyelid conditions which may cause eyelid lumps and bumps. Most common of these that fit your description are the styes and the chalazions. A stye is red and tender, whereas a chalazion is red, but not painful. It occurs when the meibomian gland becomes fully blocked, and thus, your eye has an inflammatory reaction. Other signs and symptoms of a chalazion include swelling on the eyelid, tenderness, sensitivity to light, increased tearing and heaviness of the eyelid. Usually, a chalazion appears with a few slight, subtle warning twinges, followed by the swollen red eyelid and finally a bump on the eyelid which is the last step before your chalazion heals on its own.
