Dr. Soroudi is a worldwide expert in treating eyelid disorders such as sties, chalazion, and hordeola.
Custom treatment for chalazions
If a chalazion does not resolve on its own, Dr. Soroudi uses a minimally invasive treatment to drain the area. Under a powerful microscope, he injects about one cc of 1% Lidocaine into the affected area, employing a special clamp to isolate the clogged gland. Using an ultra-sharp surgical blade, he makes a very small vertical slit into the affected gland, draining out the fluids.
With the use of a curette (a surgical tool to clean the area), he makes sure the debris in the gland is removed. He then typically injects a tiny quantity of a special steroid (Kenalog) into the region to minimize inflammation. Most of his patients experience an 80-90% improvement the day after this procedure and 100% improvement within a week. If you have a chalazion, contact Dr. Soroudi today.
