How long is the recovery period after chalazion surgery?

In brief: 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.
