2. What Chalazia Feel Like

Symptoms of a chalazion include eye irritation, swelling and blurred vision. The lump itself is usually smooth and soft to the touch when it is new. As time goes on, the lump can form into a hard cyst.

Eye irritation can be caused by the pressure of the eyelid pressing against the eyeball. Blurred vision is a sign that the chalazion has swelled up enough to change the shape of the eyelid, causing the affected person to have distorted vision.
