Just as you wouldn't pay for a fault with Sky if it was a fault at their end - but the dish is YOUR end.

I think it's either 10 or 14 days?, the drops are antibiotics and steroids - and I don't know about you, but I found they were really quite painful by the end of that time.

I've had one lasered as well, it needs doing in about 50% of cases, and the time scale varies.

Incidentally, the drops they put in after the laser DON'T sting, and they don't warn you they 'might' :D
