Chalazions are extremely common, and having a sound surgical technique to drain a chalazion is a fundamental in general ophthalmology and oculoplastic surgery. I believe one of the biggest downfalls in treating chalazions is inadequate local anesthetic. Please that both the outer and inner surface to the eyelid need to receive local anesthesia to make the patient totally comfortable. It is important to be careful in delivering the local anesthetic and making sure you have control of the head position, and the position of your needle is bent to minimize any possibility of contact with the globe.
