Formatted abstract
Background: Chalazia, or meibomian cysts, are often seen in general practice. While most can be resolved with a minor operation in a designated procedure room, there is a lack of published literature on the details of the incision and curettage used to treat this condition.

Objective: This article outlines the management and treatment of chalazia in the general practice setting.

Chalazia are a common cause of morbidity in people of all ages. Treatment, which is based on clinical diagnosis, can involve conservative management, intralesional steroid injection, or incision and curettage.
