Stye chalazion at the MW Clinic London
  • A stye or chalazion is a common eye condition that can cause discomfort and irritation. At the MW Clinic London, our expert ophthalmologist and aesthetic doctor,Miss Meg Minasian, has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating styes and chalazia.
  • A stye is a small, painful lump that develops on the edge of the eyelid. It is caused by a bacterial infection of the eyelash follicle or oil gland. A chalazion, on the other hand, is a painless lump that develops deeper in the eyelid, usually caused by a blockage in the oil gland. Both conditions can cause redness, swelling, and discomfort, and may even affect vision if they are large enough.
  • At the MW Clinic London, Miss Meg Minasian, will carefully evaluate each patient's eyes and determine the most appropriate treatment option. This may include warm compresses, eyelid hygiene, or medications such as antibiotics or steroids.
  • For persistent or severe cases, Miss Minasian may recommend a minor surgical procedure to drain the stye or chalazion. This is typically performed under local anesthesia, and involves making a small incision to allow the pus or oil to drain out. This procedure is usually very effective and provides quick relief of symptoms.
  • It's important to note that styes and chalazia can sometimes be a sign of an underlying medical condition, such as rosacea or seborrheic dermatitis. As such, Miss Minasian will perform a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history and individual needs before recommending a treatment plan.
  • Overall, styes and chalazia can be uncomfortable and frustrating eye conditions, but there are a variety of safe and effective treatment options available. Our team at the MW Clinic is committed to providing the highest level of care and expertise to our patients, and we encourage anyone experiencing styes or chalazia to schedule a consultation with Dr Minasian to explore all of their treatment options.
