What is Chalazion Removal?

Chalazion removal is a minor surgical procedure for treating chalazion, cyst-like lumps that form due to a blocked oil gland in the eyelid. While smaller chalazions can sometimes resolve on their own, large or persistent ones may require surgical intervention. The procedure involves removing the chalazion under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort and a quick recovery.

“So far so good! I didn’t know what to expect from day one. I was nervous.but from the moment I walked in. But, there was warmth in the atmosphere and in all honesty the nurse makes it prominent. She is personable and easy to talk to. When I met Dr Davidson I felt he was legitimately answering my questions and addressing my issues with genuine honesty and concern. Will be returning!!”

Chalazion Removal Treatment

After numbing the affected area with local anesthesia, a small incision is made on the inside of the eyelid to remove the chalazion without visible scarring. The procedure is quick, typically taking only about 15 to 30 minutes, and is performed by our experienced oculofacial surgeons who specialize in eyelid surgeries.

We will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and quick healing process.

After chalazion removal, patients typically notice an immediate improvement in the appearance and comfort of their affected eyelid.
