Hearing Aids

Hearing Aids – Know the Difference…

Hearing aids are medical devices, and as such they need to be prescribed and fitted by someone trained and qualified to do this. Buying a hearing aid without an initial face-to-face consultation, professional fitting, and subsequent follow-ups could result in you purchasing an ineffective hearing instrument for your loss, or worse, damaging your hearing further. Additionally, the consultation includes an examination, which can highlight other serious ear-health conditions. Consumers should seek out an Audiologist for proper diagnosis of hearing loss and fitting of hearing aids.
