firesea: self-portrait

(no subject)

My audiologist is doing consults next week on an implantable alternative to hearing aids called the Vibrant Soundbridge. Looks quite interesting. FDA approval docs for the device are here.

Downsides: $15K per ear, 2-month healing time during which you can't wear your hearing aid, and I'm still pretty scared of surgery. But I definitely want to know more about this, especially since my current aids will be dying in a year or so.
