Cochlear implant for single sided deafness
Visited my audiologist (Dr. of) yesterday and she informed me that the FDA approved CI implants for single sided deafness, as of July 2019. Wondering if anyone has any other information on this, has had one implanted for this condition and pros / cons of having one implanted.
I currently use the Phonax Bi-Cross with decent results (still cannot sound locate). My deafness, since age 3, is due to meningitis and I do have a moderate loss in the good ear. I plan on discussing this with my ENT Dr. in my annual January appointment but, he is not a big fan of CI’s in my case (he is not against CI’s – just in my situation).
Thank you in advance.
