Once you have had a hearing aid evaluation where we choose the hearing aids that are right for you, you will be seen for a hearing aid fitting.This is where the audiologist will program them to your specific prescription which is devised from your hearing test. There will be a custom fitting for your unique ear as well.
Also, the audiologist will give you information on:
- How to insert and remove the hearing aids
- How to clean and care for them
- How to change the batteries
You will have a follow up appointment in one to two weeks after your initial fitting. During this time, patients generally have a list of question. It is a good idea to bring a close friend or family member to help remember all of the information you will be given at this appointment.
It may take time to adjust to the new hearing environment, but what you are hearing should eventually be clear, comfortable, and pleasant. If it is not so, some minor changes may be made. To help with this process, there may be a short survey or list of questions to answer to better understand your hearing experience.
Let’s make your hearing the best it can possibly be by working together! We look forward to your personalized, hearing aid fitting appointment.
