Although it is unsightly, it is easy to treat and should not cause your child any major problems with their vision. As a first step in treatment, your child will be prescribed antibiotics to reduce the inflammation in the eyelid. Heat treatment with hot compresses can also help and may actually release the contents of the cyst, which means that further intervention is not needed. If it has not resolved on this treatment, it can be removed surgically.

There are several causes, but the main two most common are bacteria and viral. There is no treatment for viral conjunctivitis. It will gradually clear up on its own, but the doctor may prescribe antibiotic drops or ointment to prevent a secondary bacterial infection occurring if necessary. Use tissues, should you need to wipe your eyes, and dispose of them immediately afterwards.
