Customer:

THANK YOU

Dr. Rick : Do you take any blood thinners or have any medical problems?
Customer:

DO YOU WANT ME TO ASK THE ? AGAIN?

Customer:

NO

Dr. Rick : Is there any pain?
Customer:

SLIGHTLY BEHIND THE EYE

Dr. Rick : OS. Is your vision affected is you hold the lid open?
Customer:

NO

Dr. Rick : Good. Well I think that a small blood vessel, possibly an artery, broke in your eyelid. This is fairly common and not usually a sign of anything serious. I would just use cold packs for the swelling and you should be ok.
Dr. Rick : Does this make sense to you?
Customer:

I WILL TRY THAT. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Dr. Rick : My pleasure have a good day!
Customer:

YOU AS WELL :)
