Did you know that the FDA requires Audiologists and hearing aid dispensers to advise patients to receive medical clearance from a physician, ideally an Ear, Nose and Throat physician, prior to fitting a hearing aid? If the patient declines to receive medical clearance, the patient must sign a waiver stating they understand that they are declining medical clearance even though it is in their best interests.
The bottom line is, hearing loss is best treated with a partnership between an ENT Physician and Hearing Specialist. There are many reasons why your hearing may not be optimal. Although devices may be recommended in some circumstances, they are not always necessary or the right answer to solve hearing problems. Sometimes, fluid, infection, wax or other more serious medical conditions can play a role in hearing loss.
reNew Hearing works closely with Comprehensive Otolaryngology to make sure that our patients have the best treatment options available for their specific type of hearing loss.
They are uncomfortable and unattractive Ironically, this myth persists because modern hearing instruments are so well concealed that most people never see them. The styles most people see in public are actually older generation units worn either directly in the ear or in a large behind-the-ear-case. Today's instruments are an astonishing blend of camouflage and miniaturization that disappear behind the ear, tinted to blend with your hair or skin color. They are ultra-light, and you barely feel the receiver as it hovers over your ear canal and delivers natural, vibrant sound.
They will make me look old.
The people you meet may not even notice you're wearing a hearing device. But, you'll notice a huge difference in how you communicate with them. Today's hearing devices let you hear what you need to hear with greater comfort and convenience. They are discreet and elegant.
Hearing instruments are not for me. Not yet anyway...
People who believe they have only slightly impaired hearing make the mistake of thinking that they don't have much to gain from a hearing instrument. It's a shame, because they waste years of their lives coping and adapting, and missing out on the joy of being more fully engaged with family, friends, and colleagues. The only way to understand what you're missing is to try these state-of-the-art hearing instruments in your own home, your own office, and your own daily life. If you're suffering from hearing loss, you'll see how these devices can pull you back into the more vibrant life you love, in a way that adapting, coping and older hearing technology cannot.
Hearing devices can adapt to the environment so you can follow conversations in a variety of situations—restaurants, phone calls, sporting events. Break out of your shell and redefine your expectations of style and comfort.
They cost a lot of money
While some premium hearing aids can sell for several thousand dollars per pair, there are affordable options available in every price range, starting at $595 each. Also, more insurance plans now offer a benefit to help with the purchase of hearing aids and easy payment plans are available. Your Specialist can advise you on the best choices and options for you.
You should consult a physician (preferably an ENT) first to rule out any underlying medical condition
At your first appointment with the Hearing Instrument Specialist
Consists of Hearing Testing and Hearing Aid Consultation.
Communication Needs Assessment.
What problems are your hearing loss causing in your life?
Will you need help with the telephone or the cell phone?
Do you attend classes, meetings, worship services?
Can you hear the television well at a normal level?
Do you eat out at restaurants frequently or do you live in a residential facility?
Your hearing specialist needs to know the answers to all this about you and more in order to make the best recommendation.
Ear Inspection to make sure there is no excessive wax or reason to refer to a physician
Testing – Tone testing for air and bone, and speech understanding as a minimum
Review Test Results – explain results in language you can understand and explain the effects of hearing loss on daily life
While hearing aids are usually the recommendation, they aren’t the only answer. You might need accessories to help you hear better on the telephone, cell phone, to listen to television more easily, or to hear a companion’s voice in a crowded place. In fact, hearing aids might not be the answer for you. Some other assistive listening devices may work better in your situation. Again, your hearing specialist can best advise you.
Just like a test drive, a demonstration of hearing aids programmed for your hearing loss is the best way to experience what it would be like to wear hearing aids. You have the option of purchasing the aids with a 100% money-back guarantee to try them out in your own surroundings with your family and friends for 45 to 85 days!
