I posted this a while ago now. I finally got my doctor to refer me to a specialist.
He froze my eye, flipped and clamped my eyelid over, and removed it from the inside. He said it was called a "compound chalazion." He tossed the "junk" into the garbage, so I didn't see how much came out. It bled a bit. I wore a patch over the eye... (4 replies)
