How Is Hearing Loss Treated?

Hearing loss may be more common than you care to realized. The audiologists at Cary, NC, can help. The reasons behind hearing loss vary in their causes and manifestations, and happens to people of all ages. It is important to understand how hearing works before discussing causes and treatments for hearing loss though.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss (according to the CDC):

Delayed or unclear speech

Does not follow directions or respond to their name, which is mistaken for not paying attention, or just ignoring

Hears some sounds but not others and turns TV volume up too high

Treatments and Evaluations:

Your Cary doctor determines the best course of action by conducting comprehensive hearing evaluations, such as tinnitus evaluations, hearing aid fittings (a time to orient to new hearing aid), hearing aid checks, usually scheduled every six months, and hearing aid evaluations to ask questions and discuss expectations.

Hearing aids are designed to improve hearing. The goal of amplifying sounds at specific frequencies where there’s hearing loss can improve overall quality of life, such as the listening environment, especially when you’re placed in a noisy place. Hearing aids amplify sound to make speech more intelligible, ease communication so it’s less tiring and preserve nerve networks in the brain.

There are multiple hearing aids. Here are a few:

Rechargeable hearing aids
Discreet hearing aids in both custom and BTE styles
Android and i-phone compatible hearing aids
Ability to remotely program hearing aids
Aids suitable for patients with an active, casual, or quiet lifestyle
Automatic programming for ease of use
Hearing loss is difficult to deal with, but you don’t have to be alone. The doctors can help you deal with your hearing loss dilemmas and improve your way of life. To learn and more, call (919) 851-5636 in Cary, NC.
