How to prevent a chalazion?

To prevent a chalazion from developing, daily lid cleaning is recommended. A Cotton eye pad with a few drops of baby shampoo should be used to clean your eyelids before going to sleep at night. An antibiotic ointment is often prescribed in cases where blepharitis is causing repeated chalazion. This should be rubbed into the base of your lashes at night once your lids are clean.

Dr Ankita Patil will also suggest few medicated eye cleanser to maintain your eyelid hygiene.

Additional tips for chalazion prevention include avoiding rubbing your eyes and only touching them with clean hands, replacing makeup regularly (around every 3 months), and protecting your eyes from pollution and dust by wearing glasses.
