In the first instance your GP may recommend conservative treatment such as holding a warm flannel on your closed eye for five minutes several times per day. They may also prescribe antibiotics to ease the infection.

If conservative treatment is unsuccessful you may be referred to a specialist consultant for removal.

What happens during eyelid cyst removal?

Eyelid cyst removal is usually performed using local anaesthetic and takes about 20 minutes. Your surgeon will numb the area in and around your eye. They will turn your eyelid inside out and then cut or scrape the cyst away using tiny instruments. They will wash the area with saline (salt) solution.

Eyelid cyst removal is usually performed as a day case meaning you can go home the day of the procedure.

Going home after eyelid cyst removal

You will not be able to drive so please arrange for someone to take you home. We will give you antibiotic eye drops or cream to use regularly in the weeks following your surgery. You may need to wear an eye patch for the first night.

Your eyelid may be swollen, bruised and a bit sore. Ice packs wrapped in a tea towel will help this settle. Take over the counter pain medication such as Paracetamol if needed. Avoid swimming until you are released to do so.

Be sure and discuss any return to work with your consultant.

Most people make a quick recovery after eyelid cyst removal. As with any surgical procedure there could be complications including:

  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Swelling

Specific complications of eyelid cyst removal may include:

  • The cyst returns
  • Allergy to medications used
  • Damage to the eye (extremely rare)
