Hearing Aids

We carry the latest technology to help any degree of hearing loss.

Hearing Aids at Medpark Hearing Center

Medpark Hearing Center is proud to be an independent hearing aid distributor, meaning we are not restricted to the hearing aids from any particular hearing aid manufacturer. We make our recommendations based on what is best for each individual patient. We are familiar with and carry hearing aids from all of the major hearing aid manufacturers.

Because we’ve been in the business for so long, we can help patients who bring in older hearing aids or other brands, even if we haven’t worked with that particular model before. That’s just one of the advantages of choosing an established hearing aid specialist with years of experience. We will look at your hearing loss and your lifestyle and recommend a make and model of hearing aids that we think will be best suited for you. If you already have some idea what you want, please let us know – we want to partner with you to find a model of hearing aids that you’ll be happy with.

We understand that cost is a concern for many patients, but we will do what we can to make the right hearing aids affordable for you.

Hearing Aid Technology

Hearing aids now come in a variety of styles that are all discreet and effective; big, bulky, beige hearing aids are a thing of the past. We’ll help choose hearing aids that suit your preferences, whether your priorities are ease of use, near-invisibility, or top-notch acoustics. Some styles are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss, while others are best suited for more severe hearing losses. The physical form of the hearing aid you choose will have minimal effect on the price, which is mostly based on the level of technology inside.

We carry the following styles of hearing aids:

  • Invisible-in-Canal (IIC)
  • Completely-in-Canal (CIC)
  • In-the-Canal (ITC)
  • In-the-Ear (ITE)
  • Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)
  • Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Choosing the Right Hearing Aids

There are many factors to consider when choosing a hearing aid. Maybe you spend most of your time at home watching TV and talking with friends, so you don’t need to worry about hearing in a crowded room, or maybe you frequently give presentations at work and need to be able to understand the other speakers and yourself as clearly as possible. Maybe you keep a very active lifestyle and need hearing aids that can withstand sweat and movement.

Every person and every situation is different. We’ll consider how comfortable you are with technology or if you have a hard time changing small batteries. If you find you have a hard time getting earplugs from the store to fit, you may also need custom-fit hearing aids, which aren’t necessarily better or more expensive; they’re just another option that may be right for you. During your hearing evaluation, we will go over some options of hearing aids that we believe will best help you. When recommending hearing aids, we look at a few factors:

Hearing Aid Maintenance

Before you bring your new hearing aids home, we’ll show you how to clean them and make sure you are comfortable handling them yourself. Hearing aids need to be cleaned regularly. They also must be kept dry, so never wear them in the shower, and don’t store them overnight in humid places such as the bathroom. You will also need to change the batteries approximately once a week unless you get rechargeable hearing aids, which are a great option if you don’t want to worry about changing batteries.

If you take good care of your hearing aids, they may last you for years to come, especially if your hearing loss doesn’t change significantly. Most hearing aids are warrantied for three years, but you may be able to keep yours much longer if you are gentle with them.

Once you are used to your hearing aids, we ask you to come to our office at least once every three months to have your hearing aids and your ears cleaned, and so we can make sure everything is still working as it should be. You’re very welcome to come in more often if you need to. Regular maintenance will help extend the life of your hearing aids and ensure you’re getting the most of your hearing treatment. We also recommend testing your hearing once a year so we can make any adjustments to your hearing aids in case your hearing loss has changed.
