The majority of hearing loss in adults is treated not by medical or surgical means, but by amplification. This is accomplished by modern hearing aid technology. Hearing aids come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all geared at providing the most comfortable fit for the patient. Digital hearing aids allow hearing loss to be programmed precisely for the patient’s specific needs. For most senior patients, high frequency hearing loss is the most common form of age related hearing loss. With digital hearing aid technology, only the higher frequencies would be amplified, thereby preventing the patient from hearing an uncomfortable level of sound across all frequencies.
With a properly performed audiogram, your hearing professional can tailor a hearing aid solution specific to your needs, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest.
