such as the Big Easy ® Piston and the Roberson Stapes Prosthesis.
A research team funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness has used cell transplantation to restore vision in a mouse model of Usher syndrome type 2A. . Never before has a cell-based treatment been used to save vision in an Usher syndrome study, in large part because no other Usher syndrome animal models have exhibited vision loss or retinal degeneration. The advancement is a critical step forward in developing a vision treatment for humans with the condition.
Kaolla Su even has a laugh at the idea of her shaving her head bald.
Kerry Thompson shares her story about the challenges she has faced living with Usher syndrome, and how her family has played an essential role in her success.

My doctors look beyond the birth of my child and they focus on my age. Forty-five. They order the labs, they take a saliva swab and run the hormone levels, the phlebotomists draw my blood, I go through all of the examinations. A collision has taken place, they tell me, postpartum depression has hit head on with perimenopause. I am dismayed. I am relieved. My motherhood anxiety and despair is fusing with my hormonal transitional mood swings and I feel like an enormous, guilt-ridden mess. I go through various supplemental mixtures and medications until the doctors find the correct concoction and the calibration takes place.
It also has the bonus effect of making her look like her mother.
I walk into the house, I am relaxed, ready to take a hot bath and go to bed. My husband is sitting on the couch. He is angry. He thought I would be home over an hour ago. I did not know this, I thought he was leaving much later. We argue. Both of us are right, both are wrong. The baby is upstairs in her crib, in a deep sleep with the humidifier humming and sound machine purring, with the acoustic design of our home restricting the noise that travels up to her room, so we are free to let it out. We argue for a good ten minutes, I am standing, he is sitting on the couch. Then he stands and reaches high for a pillow on the back of the couch next to me, but I do not see the pillow, I only see the elevated arm and open hand and I snap into a ferocity that my husband has never seen. My entire body visibly trembles as my voice extends to an outrageous pitch louder than any sound he has ever made. “Don’t you ever raise a hand to me! If you ever raise a hand to me or hit me, I will rip you to fucking pieces!” My husband is stunned, incapacitated, with a mixed look of amazement and regret. I continue, “I will fucking take your daughter and leave and you will never see her again!”
Annie also has this done in the 1998 version.
This turmoil in our house continues for another year. After dinner on a dark, winter night, I have a massage scheduled at a local chiropractic office. It is the one moment, once a month, that I have complete tranquility moving through my body. That I forget about every item my husband has lost or his exaggerated activities, that I forget about our invasive dogs. My husband has made plans to meet up with some motorcycle enthusiasts once I return. After my massage, I stop at the grocery store to pick up yogurt and cashews, I also realize we need fresh fruit so I fill several bags.
"That'll be ten bucks eight dollars."
I walk outside to the front of the house and call for my dogs. I whistle using four fingers pressed to my tongue, the type of whistle heard at a sporting event. I wait. It is cold even without snow. The wind bats my curls, I pull my wool cardigan closer, then whistle more. I call again. Tears swell, but not because of the frigid temperature. The thought of cremating my dogs together is devastating. I will mix their ashes before spreading them so they will always have one another, especially after I have been so mean. Yet, thinking of light ashes drifting away, lifting from under my responsibility, settles me. I whistle one more time, and then, they come running. They are not dead. They are not even dripping from a possible fall into the lake. They rush into the house, joyful with dog smiles as though nothing has happened.
