(PS29B) [45] this corner of the eye, to
(PS29C) [46] Yeah.
(PS29B) [47] the top of the nose.

(PS29B) [54] if that is a little, that keeps blocking,
(PS29C) [55] Mm.
(PS29B) [56] when you blow your nose it will tend, it can go the
(PS29C) [57] Mm.
(PS29B) [58] other way as well.
(PS29C) [59] Yeah.
[60] But are they okay with leaving it
(PS29B) [...]
(PS29C) [61] for another week will I?
[62] It'll be okay with
(PS29B) [63] Mm.
(PS29C) [64] leaving it.
[65] I hope.
(PS29B) [66] Well I hope the Eyecron will actually get it to settle down.
[67] So, you said that was the first thing, or were, was it [...] that were both [...] it
(PS29C) [68] No that was it.
[69] I wanted to be honest and say I'd
(PS29B) [70] Yeah.
(PS29C) [71] lost a prescription.
[72] Then we
(PS29B) [...]
(PS29C) [73] went away you see?
[74] And I thought, well I'll just pop in chemist and I was hoping it would clear it up, so I wouldn't
(PS29B) [75] Yeah.
(PS29C) [76] have to confess.
(PS29B) [77] No don't wor
(PS29C) [78] But it's not.
(PS29B) [79] Still gritty?
(PS29C) [80] Yeah.
(PS29B) [81] So we'll see what the Eyecron does.
[82] If it still remains uncomfortable, then we, then we need to have a closer look and we may need to get the eye specialist involved if it's refused to settle down.
[83] But you can still see clearly?
(PS29C) [84] Yeah.
[85] Yeah.
(PS29B) [86] That's good yeah.

(PS29B) [...]
(PS29C) [90] holiday, it was terrible.
(PS29B) [91] Well it's bit brighter at the coast, and
(PS29C) [92] Yeah.
(PS29B) [93] Well we'll, we'll see what happens with the Eyecron I think that'll turn it off, but [...] doesn't then we must have another look, very
