Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, your hearing care professional will discuss different hearing aid styles, colors, technologies and benefits. Your specialist will help you select the right hearing aid for your personal needs. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing device chosen.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Diagnostic hearing tests are performed to determine if a hearing loss is present, and if so, to detail the type and severity of the hearing loss.
Tinnitus is often described as a ringing in the ear and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation by a hearing healthcare provider can help to identify the cause of your tinnitus, the impact on your life and discuss treatment options that can benefit you.
