Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection

During a hearing aid evaluation, you will partner with your audiologist to determine your listening needs and preferences. You will learn about the different styles, technologies, and benefits of hearing aids.

Fitting, Orientation, and Rehabilitation

To determine the optimum settings for your hearing aids, we use your audiogram, as well as your personal impression of how well you can hear. You doctor will program and acoustically tune your hearing aids based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The accuracy of your prescription is ensured by using Real Ear Measurements, which measure and verify the actual sound from your hearing aid as it is delivered to your eardrum. Your audiologist will make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.

When adjusting your hearing aids, we take various measurements to check how well you can hear. Once we teach you how to use them and take care of them, you should wear your new hearing aids for a few days in your regular surroundings.

Over the course of 3 follow-up appointments, your audiologist will guide you through adapting to the new and different sounds provided by your hearing aids. This is a rehabilitative process that takes time and effort on the wearer’s and audiologist’s part to fine-tune the hearing aids and to teach you brain to process the new hearing aid sound.

Did you order your hearing aids online or over the phone? Wondering if you are hearing the best you can through them? Struggling with comfort and fit?
