Complaints or lumps that persist for about 1 month, and have not yet disappeared or healed, this condition is likely a kalazion, or the presence of chronic inflammation of the gland oil / meibom gland. This condition can also be caused by improved hordeolum / bintitan / lead but the lump is still persistent. Patients, at the beginning of inflammation can experience swelling of the meibomian gland due to an infection and blockage, so that it is swollen and can contain pus. When the inflammation process improves, the infection is gone, the recovery process sometimes still causes lumps of 0.5mm in size, and if it has been going on for a long time or about 1 month, it is usually not accompanied by pain. do not want to carry out consultation and further treatment to the ophthalmologist.
Patients with eyelids, often triggered by several things, such as:
1. Eye fatigue
2. Lack of sleep
3. Contamination of the eye area by bacteria from the hands or inflammation of the hair roots of the eyelashes
5. Viral infections
In the early stages of treatment, it can be done independently at home, by increasing the need for rest for the body and eyes and giving a warm compress (temperature of 40 degrees Celsius) at the bump point for about 15 minutes, 3-5 times each day. Giving a light massage to the bump area after compressing it is expected to help open the meibomian gland blockage. However, if this complaint does not get a good treatment, or the complaint is still persisting despite getting treatment by a doctor, then the next step is to visit an eye doctor for cleansing action of this gland block or clean the lump on the eyelid.
If your husband is afraid because of the action and is related to injection, then you can provide understanding and invite your husband to come to the eye doctor and just ask or consult first. With this visit, the doctor can explain and give directions for the procedure to be performed. This will help your patient or husband calm down in preparing for this action by knowing, hearing or seeing directly from the doctor who will treat him.
And related to anesthesia, anesthesia for this action can be done by giving eye drops or eye cream without injecting. In addition, the doctor can also administer local anesthesia with drops, then proceed with local anesthesia with injections, this is because the time of anesthesia with drops is shorter, so local anesthesia with injections is needed. General anesthesia can be performed, but this is not done because it does not provide an appropriate indication for general anesthesia. However, all of this needs to be discussed with your ophthalmologist, because the ophthalmologist who will handle better understand the condition of the kalazion, its location, and plan for an appropriate anesthesia technique. Without a direct discussion between your husband and the eye doctor, the information needed and the right information will not reach your husband, and this will prolong the process of handling and prolong the healing process.
For now, give support to your husband, understanding to be more calm and relaxed when undergoing consultation or surgery. Show some examples of video streaming of kalazion surgery using local anesthesia, so that your husband accepts this procedure properly.
