My model fits over the ear, so I have to be careful when brushing my hair or else the device gets tangled in my hair and falls off. So I just remove them now when using hot rollers or a hairbrush, etc. My only disappointment was that I took the hearing aids in for monthly maintenance, which the technician said was a free service. But when I took them in, the technician (a different person) said no, they didn't do that. She gave me the supplies and showed me how to do it at home. I think that covers all the bases. It's been two months, and I'm happy so far.
Everything I did to help could have been had from a trained reading instructor (not a reading teacher) at about $25/hour — a quarter the price. Ironically, even by the end of my time at LearningRx I was not even a competent reading instructor. And, worse, my brain trainers were at an even lower level — maybe advanced beginners if they stayed a year. I only had an hour per week to teach them what I was learning in my side reading. NONE of the teaching of my trainers was required by the home office. I learned and I taught because I thought we needed to earn the right to be called a reading program.
I had LASIK on both eyes in [redacted] 2010. Since then, I have spent [redacted] and spent countless hours at the doctor. My left eye is almost as good as it was prior to LASIK. My right eye on the other hand is no where near where it was prior to LASIK. My vision is blurry. I can not read 20/20 on the eye chart. I am lucky that I can still see out of my right eye. I reported to my LASIK doctor that I was having problems and he dismissed me. This has devastated myself and my family. I was told prior to the surgery that I would be able to return to normal after about one day post op. That is so not true. I am currently on over the counter eye drops, Restasis, Pred Forte and Combigan. My current IOP is in the 20's as a result of the steroids and the glaucoma med. I have had steroid induced glaucoma as well as three incidences of DLK -Sands of the Sahara-. When I told Dr.[redacted] of [redacted] that I was having trouble seeing he told me I must have health issues and to see a doctor. After seeing every kind of doctor under the sun; chiropractor, family doctor and a psychiatrist, I got a second opinion from a different ophthalmologist who diagnosed me with DLK and started me on the steroid and returned me back to Dr.[redacted]. After many more months of poor vision, I consulted with a third ophthalmology office who concluded that after not having my pressure checked and being on steroids non stop, I was a steroid responder. This doctor told me to discontinue the steroids and return to Dr.[redacted] for f/u. Ten months op and I am still seeing Dr.[redacted] with no improvement in my vision. He never performed an enhancement but he did lift the flap and irrigate it at one point.
