I’ve worn glasses for about 65 years. Hearing aids for 20.
I finally learned that I have to buy frames that suit my lifestyle. I’m a photographer. I bend the adjustable nose pieces on my eyeglasses quickly and badly. It’s all downhill from there. So I have finally bought plastic frames. Big improvement.
My hearing aids have microphones on the shell…so now I’m putting my eyeglasses on first; then my hearing aids. That way my microphone slots aren’t blocked with the temples of my glasses. Learned that here. Makes sense…?
Until I got my Phonak Audeo Paradise p90R’s I used sports locks. Little plastic strips that went from the receiver to my outer ear. They helped keeping them in.
Before I changed frames I almost lost my P90 hearing aids a bunch of times. Scares me.
After I bought new frames that solves that.
Worst of all is wearing a mask with ear loops Again I’ve almost lost my hearing aids taking things off. I was in having procedure yesterday, and had to wear a mask. A mask extender helps if I remember to use it.
That’s how I’m coping…
I asked my optometrist and my audiologist knows how to cope. No help. Optometrist makes assumptions then takes measurements and orders my lenses. That really messed me up. I found I have to question everything they do. (They placed the temples of my glasses on my hearing aids, and then took measurements so my lenses could be ground. Found that out when I bought my next glasses. Next glasses were much better. Had those previous glasses for years.)
