Hearing loss isn't always detectable. You should have your hearing tested if you find that you have any of these symptoms:
- Trouble understanding others in noise
- If you hear and don’t understand what people are saying
- If you ask people to repeat themselves often
- Ringing in the ears
- Watching TV at a volume above others in your company
If you experience any of these symptoms, we recommend that you have your hearing tested. Our comprehensive hearing test is the first step in deciding whether hearing aids are right for you. This helps us to get a better picture of your hearing loss and your understanding of speech. We will review your audiogram to give you an understanding of your hearing, and we will determine whether hearing loss is present. We provide hearing aids from several leading manufacturers and have the expertise to decide which hearing aids will be a good fit for you. We have worked with hearing technology for years and are highly trained to fit them to accommodate your hearing loss.
We understand how much your life can be affected by the persistent ringing or click in your ears associated with tinnitus. You may be suffering from the condition and feel like you are alone. You may be worried that you will never be able to enjoy living your life as you did before. Seemingly endless noise in the ear will make anyone feel helpless, for sure.
However, there is support at hand. Although there is no medical cure for tinnitus, we look at the severity of your tinnitus and then find solutions to help you live with the condition and restore your quality of life.
According to the Hearing Health Foundation, around 90 percent of tinnitus cases are associated with an underlying hearing loss. That is why a hearing test is one of the first steps we take when treating someone with tinnitus. We are optimistic that we can provide long-term relief from your tinnitus symptoms through a combination of lifestyle changes and cutting-edge technology.
Hearing Aid Repair
Even if you take great care of your hearing aid and treat it properly, it will likely eventually need maintenance and repair.
Although replacing your damaged hearing aids could be the best option in some situations, we will take a close look at your devices and repair them when we can.
The cost of replacing a broken or faulty hearing aid depends on a few factors: if the hearing aid is under warranty, how damaged it is, and the cost of replacement parts.
If you purchased your hearing aids from us and it is still under warranty, the repair will likely incur no cost. Hearing devices no longer protected by a guarantee or purchased elsewhere are more likely to bear costs.
Custom Hearing Protection
The harm done to the ear's delicate hair cells is mostly attributed to excessive exposure to noise. These hair cells make it possible for your auditory nerve and brain to work together to interpret sound. The trouble is, human hair cells do not regrow when they are harmed or destroyed. If they are gone, they are gone for good. That's why you should avoid noise whenever you can.
But what if you can't avoid the noise? That's when you need hearing protection. While earplugs from the drugstore better than nothing, the best kind is undoubtedly custom-fitted hearing protection. They are incredibly comfortable and protective as they are based on your particular ear shape.
Custom earmolds are suitable for those who experience noise anywhere, whether at work or play, such as military personnel, musicians, and motorcyclists.
Assistive Listening Devices
Hearing aids make a significant difference to most people with hearing loss. But there are some situations where hearing aids cannot help. Assistive listening devices carry sound straight to the hearing aid from a particular source, such as a PA system or a microphone. They isolate important sounds, especially those that a person needs to hear, from the background noise. This helps them to increase the speech-to-noise ratio in favor of the listener
Assistive listening devices can help amplify sounds for you in various activities, such as:
- Watching television
- Talking on the phone
- Understanding the speaker at public events
- Understanding the teacher while in class.
