Hearing Loss?

Hearing loss is a common problem that can affect people of all ages. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, noise exposure, and certain medical conditions. If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to a range of problems, including difficulty communicating with others, social isolation, and even cognitive decline.

One of the most effective ways to treat hearing loss is with a hearing aid. A hearing aid is a small, electronic device that is worn in or around the ear to improve hearing. It amplifies sound, making it easier for individuals with hearing loss to hear and understand speech.

Benefits of Using a Hearing Aid

Benefits of using a hearing aid go beyond just improved hearing. Here are just a few of the many ways that a hearing aid can improve your quality of life:

Better mental health

Hearing loss can take a toll on your mental health. It can cause frustration, anxiety, and even depression. Using a hearing aid can help reduce these negative effects and improve your overall mental well-being.

Improved physical health

Research has shown that untreated hearing loss can lead to a number of physical health problems, including an increased risk of falls and a decline in cognitive function. Using a hearing aid can help reduce these risks and improve your overall physical health.

Enhanced quality of life

Overall, using a hearing aid can greatly enhance your quality of life. It can help you stay connected to others, improve your mental and physical health, and allow you to participate more fully in life's activities.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OVER THE COUNTER (OTC) HEARING DEVICES AND PRESCRIPTION HEARING AIDS?

Benefits of using a hearing aid go beyond just improved hearing. Here are just a few of the many ways that a hearing aid can improve your quality of life:

Many Americans with hearing issues can benefit from the use of hearing aid devices. However, there are many different types of hearing aids. It is important to understand the differences between over-the-counter (OTC) devices and prescription hearing aids prior to making this important decision.
OTC devices are marketed to individuals with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss who are at least 18 years old and have no other complicated ear conditions. Prescription hearing aids are able to compensate for mild to profound hearing loss and may be used with all age groups. It is important to confirm your degree and type of hearing loss prior to pursuing any form of hearing aid. This is to ensure you are a candidate for a hearing device versus the need for medical intervention.

A visit to 3D Hearing will include a comprehensive hearing evaluation and a screening for any medical disorder of the ear to see if you are a proper candidate for hearing aids. And with prescription hearing aids and services through 3D Hearing a licensed audiologist or hearing aid dispenser will help you by identifying your specific hearing aid needs. That allows the ability to program the hearing aids to your specific hearing loss and validate the hearing aids are providing the proper amount of amplification.

With an OTC device, you would perform a “self-fitting,” with either preset programs on the aid or via a smart phone. Services and warranties differ between OTC and prescription hearing aids. Prescription hearing aids purchased from 3D Hearing will have a 1-3 year warranty, are adjustable, and receive routine maintenance. Additionally, hearing loss is usually progressive, and opting for prescription hearing aids at 3D Hearing allows for necessary future adjustments to maintain optimal listening results. For OTC devices, there are no set regulations for services or warranties, and the client is likely to receive limited help from the manufacturer.
