  Meibomian Cyst Previous Page Next Page 
Meibomian Cyst
Sebaceous glands are present in the eyelids. They are the oil producing glands. When a gland becomes blocked with sebaceous material this results in a rounded swelling (cyst) in the upper or lower eyelid.
A small cyst may resolve spontaneously. An acutely infected meibomian gland may benefit from Antibiotic Ointment and "hot spoon" bathing.

A large cyst may require incision and drainage. This is a short surgical procedure performed under local anaesthetic.
