Please refer adults aged 18 years or over, with eyelid, eyelash or lacrimal problems using the guidance below. Referral is usually for a surgical procedure but can also be for assessment of an associated condition (e.g. blepharitis associated with chalazia).
Patients need to be able to cope with undergoing a local anaesthetic procedure. Patients who may need a general anaesthetic are best referred directly to secondary care.
The service is a one-stop service with treatment carried out immediately after assessment. Follow-up appointments are usually unnecessary.
