Hearing Aid Fitting
What To Expect At A Hearing Aid Fitting
On the big day, you will walk into the office ready to hear again, and the audiologist will make sure your devices are fitting properly and are specially adjusted just for you. At our offices, we use the gold standard of care when fitting hearing aids - meaning that we do real-ear measurements. The real-ear measurement process is a snapshot of your hearing aids' ability to properly amplify sounds based on your unique hearing, so when you leave you can be assured that your ears are perfectly fitted. We will also answer any questions you may have about the care and maintenance of the devices. You will want to bring in some family members or friends so they can learn too.
Hearing Aid Fitting Will Help You Get The Best Sound
Programming your hearing aids is an important step in beginning to wear and use them. This applies to all hearing aids including behind-the-ear (BTE), in the canal (ITC), and completely-in-canal (CIC) devices. It may also apply to certain hearing instrument accessories such as telecoils, FM systems, and remote controls for volume adjustment or wireless connectivity.
Before you can begin listening with your hearing instruments, you will need to program them properly for several aspects of your lifestyle.
We will also do real ear measurements for each ear to make sure everything is set just right.
