Some symptoms of hearing loss include: feeling like people are mumbling, difficulty understanding speech in a group setting, asking others to repeat themselves, turning up the TV or radio so loud it bothers others, difficulty hearing during phone conversations, having trouble hearing in background noise and concentrating so hard to listen that you become tired. If you think you have a hearing problem, contact us to schedule a hearing evaluation. We will come to you.
The most common causes of hearing loss include excessive noise, infections, genetics and aging.
There are three different types of hearing loss:
1. Conductive: Typically the result of obstructions in the ear. This can typically be treated surgically or medically.
2. Sensorineural: Hearing loss resulting from inner ear or hearing nerve damage. This can typically be improved with the use of hearing aids.
3. Mixed: A combination of conductive and sensorineural
When choosing a hearing aid, you can select by circuit and size. Circuit options include conventional, programmable and digital. Size options include BTE, ITE, ITC, RIC and CIC. We will match you with the appropriate product based on your specific needs and budget. Please contact us for a consultation. We will come to you.
There are several factors to consider when choosing a hearing aid. They include reason and severity of hearing loss, lifestyle, dexterity, size and shape of your outer ear and inner ear canal and budget. Contact us and we will advise you as to the best choice for you.
Hearing aid batteries usually last a week, if used daily.
The prices of hearing aids vary depending on the specific model and features. We do accept most insurances and offer financing plans.
