Meibomian lid cysts (Chalazia)

Lid cysts are common and may require intervention. If they are troublesome, then the operation can be performed at the Rooms.

The operation is a minor procedure and is done under local anaesthetic. The eyelid is numbed with anaesthetic eye drops and then infiltrated by local anaesthetic injection placed under the conjunctiva of the eyelid. A small cut is then made on the inside of the eyelid to release the contents of the cyst.
An eyepad is taped over-night and then removed and discarded on the following morning.

Instrument cleaning is with ultrasound and hot oven sterilisation using disposable adjuvant items for local anaesthesia. A comfortably reclining chair is used for the procedures.
