Hearing Aids

Living with a hearing loss means going through life with a wall between you and your loved ones. Untreated hearing loss can be difficult for you and everyone around you. But getting the help you need doesn’t have to be difficult.

Testing

A hearing test will determine whether a hearing loss has occurred. It will also illustrate the type of hearing loss and which ear the loss is in. We can then determine if treatment is necessary and what type of treatment option will be most suitable for you.

Other Hearing Services

Assistive Devices

The term can refer to any device that helps a person with hearing loss to communicate. With the development of digital and wireless technologies, more devices are becoming available to help people with hearing disorders communicate more meaningfully and participate more fully in their daily lives.

Hearing Aid Cleaning/Repair

Repairs may be needed from time to time in order to keep your hearing aids working smoothly. Most repairs are quick, easy, and simple to diagnose and fix. Periodic cleanings of your hearing aids will ensure they are working as well for you as they possibly can.

Custom Earmolds

Sometimes one size fits all earmolds don’t fit.  A custom-fit provides increased comfort and improved protection. We offer specialized earmolds for hunters, workers, musicians, and swimmers. Custom molds can be used in a variety of products including headphones, stethoscopes, and earpieces. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is age-related hearing loss?

Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, comes on gradually as a person gets older. It seems to run in families and may occur because of changes in the inner ear and auditory nerve. Presbycusis may make it hard for a person to tolerate loud sounds or to hear what others are saying. Age-related hearing loss usually occurs in both ears, affecting them equally. The loss is gradual, so someone with presbycusis may not realize that he or she has lost some of his or her ability to hear.

What is an audiologist?

An audiologist is a professional who diagnoses and treats hearing and balance problems. An audiologist has received an Au.D. (Doctorate in Audiology), or a Master’s or Doctoral degree from an accredited university graduate program in audiology. Audiologists are trained to diagnose, manage and treat hearing or balance problems for individuals from birth through adulthood.

Who is the typical person suffering from tinnitus?

Of adults ages 65 and older in the United States, 12.3 percent of men and nearly 14 percent of women are affected by tinnitus. Tinnitus is identified more frequently in white individuals and the prevalence of tinnitus is almost twice as frequent in the South as in the Northeast.

Why am I losing my hearing?

Hearing loss happens for different reasons. Many people lose their hearing slowly as they age. This condition is known as presbycusis. Doctors do not know why presbycusis affects some people more than others, but it seems to run in families. Another reason for hearing loss with aging may be years of exposure to loud noise. This condition is known as noise-induced hearing loss. Many construction workers, farmers, musicians, airport workers, yard and tree care workers, and people in the armed forces have hearing problems even in their younger and middle years because of too much exposure to loud noise. Hearing loss can also be caused by viral or bacterial infections, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors, and certain medicines.
