If you have been diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss, chances are your audiologist recommended hearing aids as part of the rehabilitative process. In recent years, research and development has increased the power and accuracy of hearing aids, while consistently striving for miniaturization. Our patients’ hearing aids are miniature computers that range in style from fully inside the ear to behind-the-ear.
Carolyn Palaga Audiology Services offers a comprehensive range of hearing aids, from the leading manufacturers, to fit each individual’s needs. Current hearing aids offer the option of bluetooth technology, enabling our patients to wirelessly stream phone calls and the television directly to their hearing aids. Another option includes rechargeable batteries that remain in the hearing aids, opposed traditional disposable batteries which need to be changed regularly - a great option for patients with dexterity or vision concerns. Modern hearing aids are also discrete, and can be hidden in the patient’s hairline behind their ear or within their ear canal.
The more technology advances, the more choices individuals have in selecting hearing aids, and the more daunting the choice can be! This is why the hearing test is so important - our audiologists can assist in narrowing down the options and recommend the right device for you.
