    Is there a doctor in the house?

    My GP told me I have a sty on my right eye lid. I forgot to ask about diving. Should I keep it dry or is sea water ok? I'm pretty sure the local pond isn't a good idea.

    I wouldn't let sea water touch it either. You weren't planning on doing any mask ditching drills were you?

    Best regards,
