Review of OptometryThe Cheesier, the Better

Chalazia are very typical eyelid lesions that most optometrists often treat. There are several treatment choices, with incision and curettage being a great in-office surgical option that often produces the best outcomes with the most patient satisfaction. The chalazion incision and curettage surgery is particularly satisfying to carry out since patients respond well to it and typically see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their eyelid from preoperative to postoperative times. A piece of advice for an optometrist who is just beginning to undertake in-office treatments is to complete a number of other procedures first to gain experience performing them on simpler removals before beginning chalazion incision and curettage.
