What are Hearing Aids?
Medical devices you wear in or behind your ears to assist in amplifying sound based on your prescribed hearing loss are called hearing aids. Some hearing losses are due to medical conditions which may be corrected without hearing aids, whereas others may affect the hearing nerve in which case hearing aids might be a solution. Certain medical conditions, genetics, age, and noise exposure are some of the factors that may lead to hearing loss.
There are a variety of different styles and technology levels when it comes to hearing aids. Your licensed audiologist will help you decide which style of device is the best fit for your hearing loss and life style. Hearing aids can be as simple or advanced as desired.
We are well-versed in rechargeable and iPhone compatible hearing aids. There are many questions you may have about hearing aids. Schedule an appointment with one of our licensed audiologists to start the discussion on hearing aids and build the relationship that will help guide you through the process.

What are the Benefits of Hearing Aids?
If you are unable to hear properly, your quality of life can suffer. Your social life may be affected and you can feel isolated and detached from conversations, especially in a group setting.
Hearing aids can help you regain the confidence to jump back into conversation and partake in family events and other social gatherings.
Hearing aids may also help in the work setting if you find that you struggle in meetings or on the phone.
Hearing aids do more than simply amplify sound:
- Hearing loss, if left untreated, can lead to cognitive decline. Studies have shown your risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s and Dementia increases if your hearing loss is not treated appropriately.
- Over 50 million people in the US alone suffer from tinnitus. This condition of ringing, buzzing, or swooshing sounds in the ears is closely linked to hearing loss. Studies suggest that hearing aids may help alleviate bothersome tinnitus and many new hearing aids can be finely tuned and personalized to dial out the annoyance of tinnitus.
- Often, relationships can become strained due to inadequate hearing and impaired communication. Hearing aids can help strengthen relationships with loved ones by bringing conversation back to life.
Hearing aids, when prescribed by an experienced audiologist, can prove to be an effective treatment for hearing loss. If you are experiencing any symptoms of hearing loss, you should schedule an appointment with our otolaryngologist and audiology team without delay.
