Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Frequent eye cysts on the eyelids can occur in many inflammatory conditions of the eyelids, the commonest conditions are hordeolum externum or hordeolum internum.
The causes for frequent recurrence of the cysts are some systemic diseases like diabetes mellitus or eye diseases like refractive errors, blepharitis.
Blephamide should not be used for long time as it it contains corticosteroid.
Hence please do consult your eye doctor for evaluation and treatment accordingly.
Thank you
