Hearing Aid Dispensing
Hearing Aid Dispensing
Along with providing a wide range of hearing services in our 10 Kentucky offices, Bluegrass Hearing Clinic offers professional hearing aid dispensing. Today’s hearing aids are truly amazing devices, and selecting the right pair for your needs is an important part of your complete hearing loss treatment plan.
After a hearing loss diagnosis, you will work with your audiologist to develop a treatment plan that works for your lifestyle and hearing needs. After talking about your options, it will be time to choose your new hearing devices. With such a wide range of styles, shapes, sizes, fits, and features available, you may be surprised at the complexity of this task. That’s why you need an experienced physician by your side every step of the way.
Benefits of Getting Hearing Aids at Bluegrass Hearing Clinic
- Professional guidance and knowledge: Choosing hearing aids is a complicated task, and patients should never select devices without the help of a hearing doctor in Kentucky. Your audiologist will explain which hearing aid styles and features work best with your lifestyle, hearing loss type, hearing needs, and budget. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, you’ll work with your audiologist to understand the advantages and disadvantages each device offers. With this guidance, you can feel confident that you’re investing in the right hearing aids.
- Hearing aid counseling: Adjusting to life with hearing aids takes some time and patience. At Bluegrass Hearing Clinic, we understand that our patients need support during their hearing aid dispensing experience. Hearing aid counseling is important before, during, and after you choose your new devices. Your audiologist will help you prepare by working through your expectations and concerns, explaining the ins and outs of the fitting and adjustment process, and offering personal and professional advice specific to your needs.
- Precise fitting: As a new hearing aid wearer, you’ll need professional hearing aid fitting services after you’ve gone through the hearing aid dispensing process. This is important because ill-fitting devices can’t perform at their full potential. During this appointment, your audiologist will check that your hearing aids fit comfortably and correctly in your ears. Ensuring that your devices feel and work great will help you adjust to wearing them every day.
- Expert programming and adjustments: In conjunction with fitting your new hearing devices, your audiologist will teach you how to program them and adjust their settings. Many of today’s hearing aids can be programmed for several different listening situations (e.g. watching TV, going to noisy restaurants, attending meetings), and getting the sound level right for each environment can be tricky. Along with helping you program sound levels for successful listening, your audiologist will show you how to make adjustments on your own as you adapt to your devices.
