If you have hearing problems, you may be able to wear a hearing aid.
A hearing aid is an electronic device that consists of a microphone, an amplifier, a loudspeaker and a battery. It increases the volume of sound entering your ear so that you may be able to hear things more clearly.
Modern hearing aids are very small and discreet and can often be worn inside your ear. Hearing aids are not suitable for everyone. Your Audiologist (hearing specialist) will be able to advise you about whether a hearing aid is suitable for you.
If a hearing aid is recommended for you, an audiologist will take an impression of your ear so that the hearing aid will fit you perfectly. The hearing aid will be adjusted to suit your level of hearing impairment.
You will also be shown how to use and care for it. After your hearing aid has been fitted, you will have a follow-up appointment one month later.
