Stye, Hordeolum & Chalazion

Kalie specializes in treatments of these unwanted conditions. Treatments Kalie may offer include antibiotic/steroid drops or ointment, injection of steroid, or surgical incision and drainage

Excessive Tearing (Epiphora)

Tearing is multifactorial. Kalie will perform a slit lamp exam as well as probing and irrigation to determine the cause of your tearing. If needed, other surgical procedures may be warranted to help ameliorate the issue. 

Eyelid Malposition

Sometimes, the eyelid, usually the lower eyelid, can turn inward or outward, causing significant irritation to the eye. A consultation with Kalie can help guide you towards the best treatment for these conditions.

Eyelid Skin Cancers

The eyelids are commonplace for skin cancers, especially Basal Cell Carcinomas. Kalie can perform an in-office biopsy to obtain a definitive diagnosis and rule out a skin cancer. The procedure can result in some swelling and bruising, but there is no associated down time. 

Blepharospasms/Hemifacial Spasms

Medical Botox can be used to treat these involuntary muscle movements, which can be debilitating at times. Botox is FDA approved for the treatment of these conditions.

Trichiasis

Trichiasis is when the eyelashes grow in misdirected and scratch the eye. Kalie can perform in-office procedures to temporarily, and sometimes permanently, resolve the irritation.

"Kalie is extremely confident and capable. She surgically remediated a persistent stye on my left eyelid. The entire process was as comfortable and painless as possible. If I ever need anything else like this again I will ask for her.” - Patient of Kalie Kosek, PA-C
