Chalazion Surgery

Chalazion is the inflammation and obstruction of one or more meibomian glands. The meibomian glands are in the eyelids and their mission is to secrete substances from the tear film. The chalazion is very obvious, it is a small ball or cyst located under the skin of the eyelid, which, sometimes, is visible to the naked eye or at least can be noticed by palpating it as a small “lump” on the eyelid.

Surgery is performed on all patients affected by chalazion in whom conventional treatment has not served to treat the lesion. As soon as it persists for more than two months or increases in size quickly, it is advisable to remove it through a simple intervention.
