Eye Ointment To Treat Kalazion?
Good night doc. At the beginning of April 2019 I checked with an ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with a lump (kalazion) in the left eye and was given drops and eye ointment. Then, in early May 2019 I underwent a Kalazion incision and received another exact eye ointment. I want to ask you how many eye ointments should be used for months? According to the doctor’s advice only one rub a day so the eye ointment is still not used up and one is still intact has not been reduced at all.
Good morning, thanks for the question
Kalazion is an inflammation of the eyelid that is quite common. This disorder generally enlarges slowly, painlessly and forms a nodule or solid lump on the eyelid. The action of kalazion nodule incision can be done if it is already disturbing vision. After the incision, the patient will be given topical antibiotic therapy of the eye (can be in the form of ointments or eye drops) as a prevention of post-action infections. Giving antibiotics generally for about 2 weeks until the complaint subsides and is not recommended for too long. Take control with the doctor who handles the post-procedure to assess the healing process and are there any complications that may arise after the action.
That's all, hope you can help.
