Is one hearing aid enough?
Our ears were designed to have two ears for a reason - both ears constantly communicate with each other as they absorb sounds from the environment. This is known as binaural hearing. Thus, if a hearing loss exists in both ears, there is a greater benefit to using hearing aids in both ears. Unless you still hear perfectly from one ear, two would always be the better choice. You can always contact us at Early for a consultation to find out which option is best for you.
How to care for and clean my hearing aids?
By carefully handling and taking care of your hearing aids, you can extend the life of your device. Here are a few tips that will help:
1. Always make sure your fingers are clean and dry before touching your device, making sure it is safe from dirt.
2. Always protect your hearing aids from moisture by removing it before showering, bathing, or swimming.
3. Always pay attention to proper ear hygiene. Ear wax and debris may affect the performance of your hearing aid.
4. Always clean your hearing aids gently with a soft, dry towel. Alcohol, solvents, or cleaning products may cause damage.
Do hearing aids help restore hearing loss?
Like spectacles, hearing aids do not correct your hearing loss bringing it back to normal. Instead, they help amplify sounds to help you hear better and understand speech that you could not earlier. The ability to hear clearly play an important role in your social, emotional, psychological and physical well-being and that is why it is important to start early.
