GENERAL HEARING-AID TIPS

Once you get used to them, wear your hearing aids all the time. You brain will adjust to them much more quickly and smoothly if you use them as consistently as possible.

Some people think that putting hearing aid batteries in the refrigerator will make them last longer. This is not true, and may actually make the batteries worse.

It can take some time to get used to hearing aids. Help retrain your brain by watching television with subtitles or reading along while someone else or an audiobook recording reads to you.

When you first start wearing them, keep your hearing aids clean and dry to avoid skin irritation.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is a condition in which there is a ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or other sound in your ear at all times. The Center for Disease Control reports that about 15% of Americans experience tinnitus of some sort. It often accompanies hearing loss. Tinnitus can be brought about by excessive noise exposure, stress, illness, or sometimes seemingly nothing at all.

Some hearing aids offer tinnitus therapy to help manage its symptoms. Ask us to learn more.
