What is Pterygium?

PterygiumA pterygium is a benign growth on the eye which protrudes from the conjunctiva and slowly spreads across to the cornea. Some patients experience no problems with these growths, because they grow slowly and they stay confined to the sclera or white of the eye, while other patients experience obscured vision when a pterygium grows over the cornea. Pinguecula are another example of benign eye growth which tend to occur in circumstances similar to those which contribute to the formation of a pterygium.

What is Chalazion?

ChalazionChalazion is a small sac containing fluid or it is a cyst on the inside of the eyelid. It is an inflammatory granuloma of a meibomian gland. This chalazion is otherwise called a meibomian cyst usually affecting the upper eye lid. When one of the meibomian gland ducts is obstructed or blocked chalazion appears. This gland is very important in keeping the eyes moist by its secretion of oily substance. The human eye lid is having several layers of tissues and chalazions are formed in one of these layers namely tarsal plate. An average human eye is having about 40 to 50 meibomian glands and ducts in each upper and lower eye lids.

ChalazionChalazion appears on the eyelids usually as an inflamed and hard sac which does not have any pain feeling even when touched. Normally, these sacs settle as a small lump and sometimes they grow larger in size and painful. Rarely, they got infected and inflamed and swell with pus. The ducts of these glands are obstructed by infection and other causes like internal small tumors like stye. Naturally the ducts break themselves and the oily substances are brought outside the cyst and chalazion disappears. But when this does not happen within a short time, chalazion becomes harder in their form and it does not go away spontaneously.
A smooth cloth with soaked in hot water will help in massaging the chalazion and by doing this the oily substances inside the chalazion becomes liquid and the ducts are cleared by this massage and the blockage opens easily. This results in disappearance of the chalazion. This is a simple treatment can be done at home itself.
