My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Chalazion Treatment

Healthy individuals with long-lasting Chalazion, where alternative and non-surgical therapies are ineffective, can be candidates to choose the surgical option for chalazion eye treatment. 

Not Recommended For Chalazion Treatment

Although a chalazion is not an emergency medical condition, an acute and inflamed chalazion should generally be treated. If your Chalazion does not resolve within one month, and it affects your vision, you should consult an ophthalmologist for definitive examination and treatment

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Overview

A chalazion is a kind of lump or cyst that develops inside the eyelid. They are small and slow-growing and not usually painful. Although the condition of Chalazion rarely lasts longer than a few weeks, in some cases, it should be treated with a surgical operation.

Preparation

Before surgery, patients need to make sure to tell their doctor or anesthesiologist about any medications they are taking, including:

 

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) medications
  • Prescription medications
  • Vitamins, supplements and herbal remedies

 

In addition, any health conditions should be mentioned by the patients before the surgery. They should avoid smoking before and after the surgery, as it can negatively affect the whole medical process

How It Is Performed

In the chalazion treatment with surgery, eye surgeons use local anesthesia before making a small incision, typically from underneath the eyelid to clear the contents of the eyelid bump and to avoid visible scarring. There is an alternate procedure for Chalazion involving the injections of corticosteroid. A potential side effect of this second method is a lightening of the surrounding skin, which can be more problematic in dark-skinned people.

Recovery

During the recovery of chalazion treatment, patients will be prescribed antibiotics to help keep the treated eye from becoming infected after the surgery. They may also be given eye pads or an eye patch to protect the eye. Some swelling or bruising around your eye is totally normal, and the surgical site may also leak a reddish fluid for a few days.

Risks

Chalazion treatment surgery is a low-risk procedure, but it does still carry a few risks and complications such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Recurrence
  • Temporary blurriness

Side Effects

During the recovery period, patients may experience some side effects include:

  • Redness and swelling
  • Bruising
  • Yellow or thick discharge
  • Pain
  • Vision problems
  • A fever higher than 101°F (38°C)

It is important to inform the eye surgeon if any of these side effects develop after the surgery. 

Success Rates

According to a study including 100 patients, after their chalazion treatment, 78% of patients had no recurrence rate after 6 months and good surgical outcomes. The remaining 22% had a recurrence of Chalazion, but with good initial surgical outcome.

Before And After

A chalazion is a small, harmless but disturbing condition that can affect the quality of life if it lasts long. Therefore, even if the last option is to get rid of the red and sometimes painful lump on the eyelid with surgery provides great comfort and satisfaction to the patient.

Faq

What is Chalazion Treatment?

A chalazion can develop when a meibomian gland at the edge of the eyelid becomes blocked or inflamed. These glands are typically for lubricating the surface of the eyes. Treatment for Chalazionis for getting rid of the Chalazion if it is not disappeared in the expected period of time. 

 

Is Chalazion Treatment Painful?

Before the chalazion treatment surgery, patients will be given anesthesia, so they won’t feel anything during the procedure. If any pain develops after the procedure, patients can use prescribed medicines to reduce their discomfort. 

 

Is There Any Option for Chalazion Treatment Without Surgery?

With the guide of the eye doctor, warm compresses, gentle massage, ointments, solutions, and medicated eye pads can be applied to help to treat Chalazion before choosing the surgery.
