I have chalazions in both eyes, one on my left eye, another on my right eye. I'm going to start my swimming classes at school and i would like to know if i still can swim with that in my eye, for example.. can i get the chalazions bigger if i go to the pool? or more infected? Even with googles there is always some water that goes into my eyes! And i'm probably going to have a surgery on friday and i have a swimming class thursday..
How are you? A chalazion is an inflammation or blockage of the deep oil glands (Meibomian glands) within the eyelid which leads to development of a small hard mass. The inflammation can spreads beyond the eyelid and can also interfere with vision. It is best that you avoid swimming especially if you will be having a surgery also. Discuss this with your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
