Eyelid Chalazion Surgery

This rather ominous sounding condition is simply a lump similar to a sty that persists. A chalazion is caused by a blocked tear gland when secretions are much thicker. This is as a result of a condition known as blepharitis. Most chalazions are treatable with hygiene intervention. However, more severe cases may require surgical draining.

As chalazions are most often caused by infection, it is important to exercise good hygiene to avoid spreading bacteria to your eyes. That means keeping your hands clean and avoiding touching the eyes in general. Antibiotic eye drops are usually all that is needed to get rid of a sty. Where surgical intervention is required, you may also need reconstruction surgery to repair any damage to the eye fold or surface of the eyelid.

Painful Chalazion

A chalazion may become painful when the lump is large enough to start irritating the eye. The presence of lumps on the eyelid may also cause the sufferer to rub the eyes, resulting in further irritation and a possible secondary infection from the transfer of bacteria. It is therefore important to consult with a specialist to have the condition treated if a chalazion persists.

Surgery is an option that your specialist will consider after an initial assessment is carried out. Dr. Kami Parsa is a qualified specialist in the treatment of eyelid chalazions and any necessary reconstruction of the eyelid. Our team can also provide beneficial advice on how to avoid future recurrence of eye infections through better hygiene practices.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
