Eyelid Cyst Surgery
What is Eyelid Cyst Surgery?
A Chalazion (otherwise known as a Meibomian Cyst) is a painless, nodule within the eyelid formed by a blockage in the oil-secreting Meibomian glands. The lesion is not of a suspicious nature and many will resolve with conservative management. However, surgical resolution is a safe and routine procedure to perform when it is required.
How is it performed?
- 1.Local anaesthetic in injected into the tissue of the eyelid
- 2.The eyelid is inverted to expose the area of the blocked gland
- 3.A small incision is made in the inside of the eyelid, allowing the contents of the cyst to drain
