What Is an Eye Lesion?
An eye lesion is a general term for a type of eye abnormality or injury. Eye lesions can include any number of damage caused to the eye by disease, injury, or even congenital defects. This can include tumors, cysts, cataracts, and retinal detachment, to name a few. While some of these conditions might not present symptoms, others can become problematic and even put your eye’s health at risk. The best option typically is to see a specialist and learn about what your unique condition is and the treatment options available.

In many cases, you may only need local anesthetic and a single visit to see results that can last for years.

Benefits of Treating an Eye Lesion
There are many potential benefits to eye lesion treatment. First and foremost, eye lesions can present a threat to your eye health in some instances. So having them removed can help you protect your vision and eye health in the long term. Furthermore, eye lesions can also have cosmetic implications as well, which are not to be underestimated. They may be visible on or around the eye itself and cause discomfort or embarrassment for the patient. At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, our eye lesion treatment will help you get rid of an eye lesion so that you can go back to living your life without worry or self-consciousness about the appearance of your eye.

Should I Have Eye Lesion Treatment?
Whether eye lesion treatment is a good option for you depends on your eye health and the particular eye lesion in question. It’s important to have an eye exam with a specialist to make sure that eye lesion treatment is the right choice. But if you are dealing with an eye lesion that is causing functional or cosmetic issues, then treating it tends to be an ideal solution. Our procedure is quick, comfortable, and reliable, delivering results that provide patients with both symptom relief and aesthetic restoration.
After the Surgery: Recovery
After eye lesion treatment, there is typically a recovery period that lasts a few days. During this time, you should take steps to protect your eye and avoid engaging in any activities that might put strain on it. You may need to limit your exposure to bright lights during the first several days after your treatment to avoid irritating the site. Dr. Williams will provide you with a complete list of post-procedure instructions tailored to your unique situation.
