Conjunctiva cyst removal is a surgery performed to remove cysts ( a thin sac filled with fluids) formed on the surface of the conjunctiva of the eye (white surface covering the eyeball) if they cannot be treated with eye drops or medication.
Steps to take before the surgery
Our doctors at Medanta will thoroughly prepare you for the procedure. Discuss with our doctor about the medication you need to take and also about the post-surgery care.
What happens during the treatment?
In this process, topical anaesthesia is applied within the area of the conjunctiva cyst. An incision is made in the cyst and the content of the cyst are drained. No stitches are required to cover the incision, and it generally heals on its own. After the cyst is removed, an antibiotic ointment is applied on the surface to avoid any infection.
After the removal of conjunctiva cyst
The patient can go home in an hour after the surgery is performed. Patients have to take proper care of the surface after the cyst removal surgery. The surface should be kept clean and warm. Ophthalmologist also prescribes certain medications and eye drops which are to be taken for a brief period of time.
The procedure is minimally invasive and does not have a lot of risks attached to it.
The advantages of Conjunctiva Cyst Removal Treatment are:

- The risk of infection in the urinary tract and at the site of the operation.
- Wound dehiscence.
- Recurrence of urethral stricture.

There is always a risk of recurrence, and therefore, a subsequent surgery is required. A patient may also require the support of self- catheterization. A catheter has to be fitted every time when a patient needs to urinate.
