It can be easy to overlook the health of your hearing, especially if you have no troubling symptoms. Children often receive hearing checkups as they develop every few months, while many adults believe that hearing loss is a problem that can be left for some point in the future. The truth, though, is that hearing problems start earlier than middle age, affecting many patients as soon as their teenage years.
Thinking of a hearing test as screening rather than an exam is helpful. Too many people assume that hearing tests are for people with a problem, just as vision tests are for people with difficulty seeing. Yet, not only does a hearing test reveal hearing loss, it may expose other physical and medical conditions you may not have heard about (and may not show any symptoms).
Hearing Aid Fittings
This is one of the most important procedures and deals with both the physical, lifestyle and sound fit of your hearing aids. After completing your hearing assessment and evaluating the degree of hearing loss, We then ask you about your lifestyle. We can better figure out what hearing aid will work for your needs by learning about the places you like to go to and what you want to do. We'll use all this information to provide you with a customized overview of the various hearing instruments appropriate for your hearing impairment level and your design, color, and feature preferences.
Hearing Aid Repair
Even if you are taking great care of your hearing aids and practicing routine maintenance, you can still wear them out with everyday use. Hearing aid repairs can help. The cost of repairing a broken or damaged hearing aid varies according to a few things: Hearing aid insurance, device failure, and the cost of replacement parts. If your hearing aid was purchased from us and is still under warranty, you will also have low repair costs.
Custom Hearing Protection
Damage to the fragile hair cells within the ear is often caused by prolonged noise exposure. These hair cells allow your auditory nerve and brain to work together for sound processing. Like bird or amphibian hair cells, when they are damaged or destroyed, human hair cells can not regrow. When they have left, they are gone forever. The best way to prevent this happening is to use custom hearing protection. This is a step up from the hearing protection offered at the drugstore.
Assistive Listening Devices
Hearing aid technology is an excellent asset to those with compromised hearing. However, if you have special requirements that your hearing aids don't meet or are not ready for hearing aids, the solution may be assistive listening devices.
