Eyelid Cyst Removal FAQs

What is a chalazion?

A chalazion is a small, typically painless lump that develops on your eyelid. It occurs when one of the meibomian glands, responsible for producing oil that lubricates the eye, becomes blocked. While chalazions are generally not serious, persistent or large ones may require professional treatment.

is chalazion removal painful?

Our highly specialist eye surgeons will ensure you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure by administering anaesthetic eye drops. You may feel some pressure but won’t feel any pain. The process of chalazion removal is designed to be as comfortable as possible. 

Does chalazion affect eyesight?

In most cases, a chalazion does not affect eyesight. However, if the chalazion becomes large enough, it can press against the eyeball, leading to blurred vision or a distortion in sight. Prompt treatment can help avoid any impact on your vision.

Can chalazions spread?

Chalazions themselves are not contagious and cannot spread from one eyelid to another or from person to person. However, the underlying conditions that lead to the blockage of the oil gland, such as inflammation or infection, can sometimes affect more than one gland.

How long does chalazion removal take to heal?

The healing process following chalazion removal varies from person to person. Following your eye cyst removal consultants care instructions, including applying any prescribed ointment and avoiding rubbing the eye, will aid in a swift recovery.

How does City Dermatology Clinic treat a cyst on the eyelid?
