On Monday I noticed some irritation on one eyelid. Tuesday it was swollen. By Wednesday it was worse so I went to opthamologist who disgnosed Chalazion and prescribed warm/hot compresses several tmes a day and TOBRADEX eye drops 4 x a day + TOBRADEX ointment at night. It is now Saturday, six days later, with eye worse.
Does this seem like good advice? Is it usual that a Chalazion will get worse after initial appearance and after treatment has started I am away from home for work which makes me less secure about medical care. At what point does surgery become necessary? How long should I go on with this treatment?
I see the doctor ten days after I last saw her that's five days from now. Thanks.
