Learn about the signs, causes, and consequences of hearing loss. Find out why hearing tests are key in finding problems early and learn about ways to protect your hearing health.

What is a hearing assessment?

A hearing assessment helps identify the nature and extent of your hearing problems. This is important in finding the right hearing aids that match your specific needs.

I've noticed a decline in my hearing, but I'm not sure if I need a hearing aid. How can I tell?

Common signs of hearing loss include difficulty following conversations, needing to turn up electronic devices, or asking people to repeat themselves often. If you experience these, it’s a good idea to schedule a hearing assessment.

Is it possible to prevent hearing loss?

While you can’t prevent all types of hearing loss, you can reduce the risk. Avoid prolonged exposure to loud noises, use hearing protection when necessary, and have regular hearing check-ups.

When do most people start using hearing aids?

Hearing loss can affect people of different ages, but it’s more common among older adults. Many start using hearing aids in their 60s or 70s.

Can I do hearing tests at home?

While some online tests can give you a basic idea of your hearing, they can’t replace a thorough evaluation by a professional.

Is hearing loss reversible?

Certain types of hearing loss, like those caused by earwax blockages or infections, can be treated. However, sensorineural hearing loss, which results from inner ear damage, often persists.

How often should I get hearing exams?

If you’re over 50 or regularly exposed to loud noises, it’s recommended to have annual hearing tests. But if you notice sudden changes in your hearing, it’s best to get tested promptly.

Are there signs of hearing loss?

Symptoms of hearing loss include trouble understanding speech, frequent requests for repetition, raising the volume, social isolation, fatigue, misinterpreting conversations, tinnitus, and ear discomfort. Timely evaluation by an audiologist is vital for effective management.

What does a hearing assessment involve?

An audiologist conducts a hearing assessment, utilizing tests such as pure tone and speech audiometry to measure hearing sensitivity and speech comprehension, alongside examinations to evaluate ear health and function.

Discovering Your Options with Hearing Aids

Let’s explore the world of hearing aids. We’ll talk about the different styles, how they work, and what to consider when picking one. You’ll also get answers to common questions about taking care of them, comfort, and the benefits of digital hearing aids.

What factors should I consider when picking a hearing aid?

When choosing a hearing aid, consider your lifestyle, the places you frequent, your budget, the extent of your hearing loss, and your comfort and aesthetic preferences for the device.

How does the style of a hearing aid affect its performance?

The style of a hearing aid impacts how it fits in or on your ear, the battery size, the naturalness of the sound, and the level of amplification it can offer. Your audiologist can provide guidance on these aspects.

Can I try a hearing aid before making a decision?

Yes, we offer a trial period for hearing aids. This enables you to experience the advantages of the aid in your daily life before committing.

How long does it take to adapt to a new hearing aid?

The adjustment period can vary. Some individuals may adapt within a few weeks, while others might require a few months. Consistent usage and follow-up adjustments can expedite this process.

Are there hearing aids that are unnoticeable when worn?

Yes, there are. Completely-in-canal (CIC) and invisible-in-canal (IIC) hearing aids are designed to sit deep within the ear canal, rendering them nearly invisible.

What are the benefits of digital hearing aids?

Digital hearing aids deliver clear sound quality, advanced features like noise reduction and device connectivity, and the ability to be customized to match your specific hearing loss.

How should I clean and maintain my hearing aids?

Routine cleaning with a soft, dry cloth and checking for wax accumulation are crucial. Storing them in a dry, cool location is also important. Thorough cleaning should be conducted by a professional.

Can hearing aids be worn during sports or physical activities?

Most hearing aids are engineered to endure regular physical activities. However, they may need to be removed for contact sports or swimming unless they are explicitly designed to be water-resistant.
