I'm a photic sneezer so I sneeze a lot, and I've had a lot of people say "bless you" to me. If they are a friend, I'll occasionally say "no thanks," but usually I don't say anything. I just sneeze a second, and usually a third, time.

Thanks for that link.  If I ever have to get eye surgery, I'll make sure I tell them I am a photic sneezer.

Yes, an opthalmologist will want to know that. It's surprisingly common.

I have to say, despite my atheism, I've never made much of an effort to remove religiously-based language from how I speak on a regular basis.  It just never mattered all that much to me.

I suppose I am an anti-theist photic sneezer too. I have 2-3 fits per week that typically last 20-30 sneezes. I don't think light triggers them, but if I feel a sneeze coming I can force it by looking at the sun or some other bright light. Sometimes it is triggered when I take a snort of liquor. Otherwise, I've always assumed it was dust.

I've had nine procedures on my right eye, you shouldn't have problems.
