Ocular Demodicosis in adult recurrent chalazion

This study found that 73% of adult eyes with recurrent chalazion had ocular Demodicidosis. Weekly lid scrub with 50% tea tree oil for 3 consecutive weeks, together with daily lid scrub with tea tree shampoo, was successful in treating Demodicidosis and preventing recurrence in 97% of cases.
