Patient information — Chalazion



View or save this information in PDF format



If your chalazion needs to be cut out:

  • Do not wear jewellery.
  • Thoroughly wash your face.
  • Don't wear make-up.
  • No contact lenses.
  • Do not drive to your appointment — your eye may be covered after the procedure and you will not be able to drive home.
  • You can return to work as soon as you are comfortable to do so.
  • Your eyelid will be anaesthetised by an injection. This may sting but the lid will soon become numb.
  • The cyst is removed by a small cut to the inside of the eyelid. No stitches are used and there will be no visible scars.
  • Antibiotic ointment will be put on your eyelid, followed by an eye pad.
  • You may remove the pad after a couple of hours. If you feel more comfortable with it on, leave it there overnight.
  • You may be given eye ointment to use for three to four days.
  • Any bruising will disappear in a couple of weeks.
  • If you are prone to chalazia, try using hot compresses on your eyelids and gently massaging them each morning.
