I am getting the implants in a week or so. Would like to hear from people who are using these bone conduction devices.

Hi, Everyone! Thanks so much for contributing to the discussion. I'm getting the Osia 2 implant in January, and reading some of your comments had made me feel much better.
I have a new question: Do any of you wear reading glasses? I wear them, and always push them up on my forehead when I'm not reading. Is the device far enough back on your head so your glasses don't bother it?

Hi RJ! January will be here before you know it! I haven’t had any issues wearing my reading glasses or sun glasses since having the Osia installed. My device sits higher than the arms of my glasses but sometimes the arms do extend over the lumpy bottom area of the implant. I’m able to push my glasses up on to my head without issue. You might have trouble with them right after surgery until the swelling dissipates. I’m excited for you!
Thanks so much for answering my question! I'm very excited for the surgery!
I look forward to hearing more about your journey to better hearing.
The Osia and Baha are not cochlear implants, they are bone anchored hearing aids.
