Is Chalazion Surgery Painful
How painful is a Chalazion operation?! From getting the surgery to the healing time. How painful is the injection?! I have a VERY LOW pain tolerance!
---: The burning from the injection is the worse part of the procedure. After the area in anesthetized you should feel nothing but a small pressure sensation ...Read more
I have styes or chalazion in my eye its rlly painful and irritating I did a surgery before to remove them but it still comes back can it cause cancer?
Usually a week or so: Depending on how the surgery is done, and how bad the chalazion, it usually takes a week or so to heal. I usually drain chalazia from the inside surface of the lid after injecting local anesthetic. After the material is drained, there is residual inflammation of the lid that can take a week or so to resolve. I usually use ice and an anti-inflammatory ointment post op to speed the process. ...Read more
Below 15 minutes: This is done by numbing the lid, turning it inside out on a special clamp, and opening and cleaning out the collected contents of the cyst. Except for the injection to numb the lid, the whole process is painless and healing is rapid. It takes less than 15 minutes as an office procedure in all cases except the occasional child that may require general anesthesia. ...Read more
Yes: Light exercise, such as walking, is fine. I suggest waiting a week before you do anything more than that. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my child is 7yrs old. She have chalazion from 7months, can I do for her surgery now or take a time. Plz ans?

Dressing/stiches rem: Once the chalazion is surgically incised and if it is large you will need stiches and these need to be removed after 5to7 days, small ckalazion may not need stiches and the small wound need to be dressed till healed, it may take 5to7days as long as there is no complication like infection. ...Read more
Swelling: Use warm compresses. The surgical site of the chalazion may continue to drain for a little bit. Once all the material is out, the swelling will go away on its own. Some people recommend ice after the third day and a steroid containing ointment, but they are not really so necessary in most cases. ...Read more
My daughter is 7yrs old. She have chalazion from 7months, Does she need the surgery immediately or can it wait?
I had a chalazion surgery about two months ago however the chalazion is still there. I've tried warn compresses repeatedly and nothing seems to work.
Recheck with eyedoc: Some chalazia are multi loculated so that your ophthalmologist may have cleaned out the larger one but simply missed the smaller one. A few will reseal and collect the debris and form another chalazion. Since these are benign, you can have another removal or simply ignore a small residual chalazion if that is all that is left. If in doubt, check with your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
It can be treated consevatively by warm compresses at home and if that fails, surgery.The cost varies from surgeon to surgeon and where you are located
it is a minor outpatient surgey and done under local anesthesia and it can cost anywhere from 100 to 1000 dollars. ...Read more
Not immediately: But after it heals, you can resume contact lens wear. ...Read more
A few weeks: After incision and drainage, the eyelid can still be swollen and bruised for up to a few weeks. Your doctor may have prescribed an antibiotic/steroid ointment to be used for the first week to help with this. Even when fully healed, sometimes a small residual lump may remain. ...Read more
Sir I had a chalazion for about 2 months I had a surgery about 1 week ago but there is a still swelling and a hard cartilage is felt. What to do?
Ophthalmologist: I assume an ophthalmologist performed the eye procedure and he/ she would be best qualified to examine, advise and treat you for this current problem also. ...Read more
I'm 2 days postop chalazion surgery- the bump is there though still, will it go away? Chances of it coming right back? What do I do? Can I wear contacts
It should get better: Usually there is some swelling after chalazion surgery. It may take a few weeks for the swelling to resolve. An anti-inflammatory will help, such as Ibuprofen. To prevent future chalazion from forming, good eye hygiene is critical. Washing the eyelids and lashes with hot water and baby shampoo will help. Also, when a chalazion is starting to form, frequent hot compresses can help. ...Read more
Usually: The eyelid is anesthtized ("numbed") before the incision and drainage of a chalazion (chronic stye). Some times for a hordeoulm (acute inflamed stye) it can just be incised with a needle a scalple if it is near draining spontaneously, and this will allow it to resolve without a more extensive surgery requiring anesthetic. ...Read more
Treatement?: What are you doing to treat the stye? I recomend warm compresses for 10-15 minutes 2-3 times a day. If this does not work, or your have been doing this, then you may need to consider incision and draining (minor surgical proceedure) or injection of steroid. Waiting and continuing the warm compresses can not hurt, and with time may resolve. ...Read more
I have had Chalazion Removal surgery 1 wk ago; however, there still is a small firm nodule palpable at the sight. Should I start warm compress now?
Depends: If it is a very small 'nubin', ie a mm or so, it will probably slowly go away by itselt without further treatment. But if it's larger, especially 3-4 mm, it may need hot packs and possible drops especially if there is still inflammation. A re-op may be needed if it is getting larger and not going away. ...Read more
4 weeks ago it was surgery for abscess chalazion. Red swelling is getting smaller but consist. How long it would be, what could I make to reduce it?
Scar: This could be scar tissue. Give it another two weeks, then see MD if tender and still there. ...Read more
Visited ophthalmologist and said I have a chalazion but he won't do surgery because its small its over a year old so compresses won't help what can I do?
Not to worry: Chalazia are benign cystic lesions in the lids representing the end stage of the battle your body made with a stye. Once formed, the only issue is the appearance. I am guessing that yours is so small that it can only be felt and cannot be seen. It will cause no problems so unless you are frankly obsessed with its presence, you should follow the advice of your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
