WILL A HEARING AID
Having a hearing loss does not mean that you can no longer enjoy your life!
But, if you find that certain words sound muffled or the TV volume is louder
than other would prefer, or that cupping your hand behind your ear allows you to
hear better, it is time to consider wearing a hearing aid.
hearing aid fitting requires a sophisticated pairing of technology, perception
and patience. Technology refers to the internal components of a hearing aid.
Perception to the patient's audition and sound preferences. And patience refers
to the period of adjustment necessary to perform well with a hearing aid. All
these factors are of equal importance to your Acoustician because each of these
factors contribute to a satisfied hearing aid customer.
HEARING AID CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER!
If you can admit
that you are having trouble hearing conversations, or understanding your
favourite TV program, or continually asking others to repeat what they have
said, a hearing aid will certainly help.
HEARING AID EXPECTATIONS
is critical that you understand what hearing aids can accomplish and have
realistic objectives. Your hearing aid should:
Allow you to hear sounds that you may not be able to hear or may not hear
clearly, like soft voices, certain consonants, children's voices, or outdoor
sounds. It will also allow you to understand speech more clearly and with
less effort, in a variety of situations.
Allow you to hear more clearly in some noisy situations, like in a
restaurant or a crowd. It cannot filter out background noise completely, but
advanced technology nearing aids can reduce background noise interference
Prevent normally loud sounds from becoming uncomfortable. These sounds
that are uncomfortable for people with normal hearing, may be just as
uncomfortable for those wearing hearing aids.
