During the first month of use of your hearing instruments, you will be better able to discern how they fit into your life and the world around you. This will give us the opportunity to talk and if necessary make the necessary changes to your hearing aids to make sure you wear them rather than leaving them in a drawer.

  • Are your hearing aids comfortable?  Your audioprosthetist will want to review the fit and feel of your hearing aids. An otoscopy will also show if there are pressure points created by the hearing aids in your ears. Any minor adjustments may be made by your hearing health professional; sometimes the hearing aid will have to be sent to be remodeled.
  • Do you like the sound of your hearing aids? Your audioprosthetist will want to know how you find the sound of your hearing aids. He will want to know how your hearing aids sound at home, at work, at the park, in quiet environments, in noisy environments, on the phone, and so on. Your hearing care professional will want to make sure you have the best sound and volume level to hear the world around you.
  • How do you care for your hearing aids? Your audioprosthetist will most likely return to the general cleaning and care of your hearing aids during your visit. He will also ensure that you master the controls and how to put on your hearing aids.
