• They are imperfect, but they have come a long way. Hearing aids are now discrete, rechargeable, bluetooth compatible and water resistant!
  • They are only as good as the programming so make sure the professional fitting them has experience with prescriptive hearing aid fittings including the use of real ear measures. Real ear measures are a must when setting hearing aid prescriptions, yet studies show that only 30% of clinics are performing these tests routinely.
  • They are not corrective, like glasses. They will not restore normal hearing, but if programmed correctly, you will hear significantly better when you wear your aids.
  • A one-size–fits-all solution (mail order) is not as good as a prescriptive hearing aids for most patients.
  • The more you wear your hearing aids the more you will like your hearing aids. It takes time for the brain to adjust.
  • Been wearing aids and still not happy with them? A second opinion regarding the programming may help. Or sometimes the hearing aids alone are not enough to help in difficult listening situations. Consider an accessory for your hearing aid to improve hearing TV, phone or in a restaurant.

At their best, hearing aids are freedom.

They let you live a better life with the aid of technology. Connecting with the people around you feels good. A good hearing aid with proper adjustment and fit reopens your world.

Hearing aids are not just about making things louder.

They can bring back sounds you’d thought were lost for good. They can help you determine where sounds are coming from again, and can reduce background noise. The best hearing aids adapt for whatever situation you’re experiencing.

Making a connection that’s high-tech, sophisticated and easy to use.

Advanced hearing aids can connect to smartphones, TV, and other devices. Some are rechargeable. But advanced hearing aids also require prescriptive programming. As doctors of audiology, we follow best practices including use of Real Ear Measures to ensure the best possible hearing outcome.

Sometimes, you may not even need a hearing aid.

Some hearing loss can be the result of fluid, earwax, or an infection. It might be temporary, or it may be treatable with medicine, surgery, or even a simple procedure. This is one reason we don’t begin the conversation at hearing aids. It’s possible that there is a simpler solution.
