We get a lot of questions about hearing aids and hearing loss.
Here are some of the most common and their answers:
In order to find out if you need hearing aids, start with our complimentary hearing screening. Even if you have normal hearing, this is a great baseline to keep with your medical records.
Hearing aids are much smaller and more sophisticated than they used to be. We carry many discreet styles that will fit your lifestyle. Schedule an appointment to see which one will fit your needs.
There are hearing aids available that have the ability to outperform normal hearing in noisy situations. In this case, speech is prioritized, and background noise is de-emphasized. The result? “Easy listening” in loud places.
Hearing aids range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. The price is dependent on your hearing loss, the style of the hearing aid, and other factors. We will work with you to find a solution that fits your budget and/or assist you with getting outside assistance or a payment plan.
Hearing aids are designed to optimize hearing clarity and understanding when using standard landlines and cell phones. The advanced wireless technology and Bluetooth solutions allow for “hands-free” listening and connectivity to your favorite Bluetooth devices.
Hearing aids in both ears improve speech understanding; minimize background noise, and help with spatial awareness along with balance and personal safety. If you have hearing loss in both ears, a single hearing aid can help. However, just as eyeglasses improve vision in both eyes, wearing two hearing aids improves the patient’s overall listening experience.
