Eyelid Lesions

There are many different types of eyelid lesions. The most common ones include skin tags, cysts and chalazions (commonly known as styes).

Chalazions are clogged oil glands in the eyelid and tend to resolve with time and warm compresses. If they do not resolve, they can be removed surgically and/or with steroid injections.

Most of the time the other types of lesions can be removed surgically in the office under local anesthesia.
