Purpose: To report characteristic findings of chalazion by noncontact meibography. Cases and Method: This study was made on 67 eyes of chalazion. The series comprised 25 males and 42 females. The age ranged from 1 to 90 years, average 38 years. We used two apparatus to record and analyze the findings: a meibogram (MeiboPen) and a camera for infrared photography eliminating light of wavelength longer than 760 nm. Results: Areas of chalazion showed high infrared reflection in 25 eyes, and low reflection in 42 eyes. Low reflection was present in 44% of cases in whom chalazion persisted for less than 30 days. It was present in 84% of cases in whom chalazion persisted longer than 30 days. The difference was significant (p< 0.0001). Conclusion: Chalazion showed lower infrared reflection in meibography when the lesion persisted longer than 30 days.
