Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
HEARING AID FITTING AND PROGRAMMING
Determine What’s Best For You
We offer straightforward, honest advice to help you find the hearing solution that’s right for you. We will discuss the pros and cons of all the options that are suitable for your hearing loss, including the style of hearing aid, cost, and the technology level required to help to hear your best.
Using a simple, painless silicone mold of your ear canal, many of our hearing devices are shaped precisely to the contours of your ear canal for a comfortable fit and optimal sound quality.
Your new hearing aids will be custom programmed to match your unique hearing loss as recorded during your hearing test. Your customized program will allow you to acclimate at a gradual pace, giving your brain time to adjust to the sounds you’ve been missing.
Patients new to hearing aids, or who have had uncompensated hearing loss for a long period of time, typically need to “learn to listen again.” Our step-by-step program will help you walk through this process with great success.
Once your hearing aids are programmed for optimal hearing and verified through Real Ear Measures (also called “verifit”), then we see you every six months for preventative maintenance of your hearing instruments. Annually, we will retest your hearing and if your hearing has changed, we will reprogram the hearing aids accordingly. This way you can be assured your hearing aids will give you optimal performance for your hearing needs.
