What did you do in the sauna?

Oops...I see, you've not yet used it.

Rick :

Do you know what kind of cataract surgery you had? I would guess it was PHACO, small incision, clear cornea, no stitch.

Rick :

are you still there?

JACUSTOMER-ct9fw8bp- :

correct with smart lens.

Rick :

Ok. Then it will be fine for you to use your sauna today as you normally would. Getting a little bit of sweat in you eyes won't hurt anything.
