LASH extensions are the most durable and natural-looking way to get a big lash line -- but extensions are a labor-intensive procedure that require powerful glue and hairbreadth precision. If your technician is even slightly careless, you'll be looking at weeks of discomfort. That would be why I woke at 3 a.m. with a swollen, watering left eye. I'd had a full set of eyelash extensions done a few days earlier at a salon in Beverly Hills.

A Your Wheels column on May 4 recommended a method for combating mold in automobile air conditioners. The process, suggested by an allergist who had safely used it in the past, involved mixing vinegar and household bleach and placing the solution in a pan in a car. Several academic and industry experts have since raised objections to the procedure, saying it could cause irritation in some individuals. In the worst case, the experts said, the vinegar-bleach mixture could produce harmful or irritating fumes.

Oregon researchers are preparing to begin human trials of a new, nonsurgical technique to prevent pregnancies. The procedure involves inserting small metal coils into the Fallopian tubes through a tiny catheter. The coils interfere with the movement of eggs and sperm, blocking pregnancy. Dr. Amy Thurmond told a meeting of the Society of Cardiovascular Interventional Radiology that they had successfully performed the painless procedure on 13 of 14 women who were undergoing hysterectomies.

It is with complete and total disbelief that I read about the abominable procedure encouraged by Dr. Philip J. DiSaia of tearing out the ovaries of women over 35 years of age if there is a history of ovarian cancer in their immediate family ("When TV and Life Part Company," Feb. 27). How does he know if a woman can tolerate replacement estrogen therapy after this barbaric procedure is inflicted on her? Nothing replaces the role of one's natural ovaries. Endocrinologists are just finding out the role natural hormones play in the quality of our lives.

Re "Veteran Pilot's Fatal Nose Dive Perplexes Family and Officials," Jan. 8: Pilots who do dumb things give the entire industry a bad name. A person wouldn't try to start his or her car without putting the key in the ignition. Deploying the landing gear on a plane prior to landing is just that elemental. There is a set procedure to flying. Follow the procedure and flying is as safe as riding a bicycle. Failure to follow the procedures set down in the checklist or manual compares to playing Russian roulette.

In the article on dress codes at Agoura High School, Sean Corey Nessen said, "They're here to teach us. What we wear should not be an issue." This is stated as if the students are not part of the learning process, like they are operated on by teachers without taking part in the procedure. How about, "We're here to learn. If clothes interfere with that goal (and they certainly do) then something needs to be modified." RONALD A. MOSSLER, Granada Hills

Regarding "Friday Lunch" (Oct. 6), the second mistake Mrs. Berkowitz made (her first was going to the restaurant) was in not giving Christopher Niklas a short, sharp rap on his snoot, a tried and true procedure used in training insolent young pups on proper civilized behavior.
