Chalazion treatment is a procedure that is designed to treat a small, slow-growing lump or cyst that develops within the eyelid. A chalazion can develop on the upper or lower eyelid, and in some cases, it may disappear without treatment. Not every chalazion is painful, but sometimes it is treated so as to improve the appearance of the eye(s). This condition can either be treated surgically or using a corticosteroid injection. The choice of treatment depends on how severe and persistent chalazion is.

Once you have decided to undergo a chalazion treatment, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and your procedure will be customized in a way that minimizes scarring. During the online consultations, expect the following questions:
Planning your trip and choosing the clinic
When you decide to have a chalazion treatment, our first step will be to present to you several detailed options of clinics and doctors. After you have chosen your preferred clinic and doctor, we will then set up an operation date and arrange your trip. All the dates are set according to your preferences!
This surgery is usually performed in the morning or afternoon, so we always recommend that you arrive in Turkey a day before the surgery –so that you can have enough time to rest.
Final Consultation with Your Surgeon
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your chalazion treatment. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals.
Before the surgery commences, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in a good health state. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests so as to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery.
Preparation for Surgery
To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, your surgeon will give you local anesthesia. If you have Trypanophobia (fear of needles), you should let us know so that we can offer you doctors who can give you anesthesia without using needles.
