Fitting your Hearing Aid
Have you noticed you are suffering from hearing loss and are thinking you might need to get a hearing aid fitted? Depending on the level of hearing loss you are experiencing, ranging from mild to profound, our audiology assessment will determine what type of hearing aid you will need.
Before we recommend a hearing aid fitting that’s right for you, our professional audiologists will conduct a comprehensive hearing assessment to diagnose the level of hearing loss you have. We will embark on a treatment plan that will alleviate further hearing loss and assist you to manage your diagnosis so you get the most out of life.
While we are not motivated by sales based commissions or receive clinical bonuses from hearing aid manufacturers we only fit hearing aids of brands that have proven to be the most innovative and reliable.
In advance of your hearing aid fitting appointment, your audiologist orders your new hearing aids. Depending upon the type of hearing aid, you may have had ear mold impressions for a custom fit. Once the hearing aids are delivered, your audiologist programs them using special software.
Your Initial Assessment
During your first consultation we conduct a thorough sound test to properly assess your hearing. Your audiologist places a thin tube in your ear near your eardrum. This tube measures the impact of loud and soft sounds on your eardrum.
Next, your hearing aid is placed in the ear canal along with the tube. By again checking the volume, your audiologist balances the hearing aid amplification, allowing you to hear soft sounds and loud sounds comfortably.
Your audiologist also will check the fit of your hearing aids to make sure you’re comfortable.
