Are you among the 80% of people who are not benefiting from hearing aids even though you have them? That’s right, the National Institute of Health (NIH) estimates that only 20% of people who have hearing aids are wearing them regularly and experiencing the better hearing benefits. We are here to help you troubleshoot your hearing aid use to ensure that you are getting the most out of them.
If you are experiencing any of these problems with your hearing aids, please call us right away to make an appointment so that we can help solve them for you. After all, you already made the investment in hearing aids, let’s make sure that you are enjoying the benefits too.
- Not fitting right. Your hearing aids are not only calibrated for your hearing, but also molded to your ears. If they are no longer fitting properly, make an appointment. It can just need a simple adjustment or re-molding to be able to work right again.
- Not working correctly. If you aren’t hearing the same way you could when you first got your hearing aids, then they might need to be re-calibrated. We can do that during your next visit, just call for an appointment.
- Outdated technology. Hearing aids aren’t made to last forever. New technology is invented all the time and if your hearing aids are outdated, come in for a consultation to see what is available or what can be done. If you aren’t ready for new hearing aids, we can still see about adjusting your current hearing aids so that they can continue helping you hear.
- Unsure about wearing them. Many people who get hearing aids don’t realize that there is a bit of an adjustment period to get used to them. Remember, practice makes perfect, but if you need help getting used to wearing your hearing aids, don’t hesitate to call us for a consultation.
