Treating Hearing Loss

Treating Hearing Loss

happy elderly couple The type and degree of your hearing loss must first be determined by an audiometric evaluation. Based on that test, an appropriate hearing aid or Assistive Listening Device (ALD) will be prescribed.An ALD can help when hearing aids alone cannot. This could involve hearing the phone ring, having a phone conversation, hearing the radio, television, doorbell, or alarm clock.

A wide variety of ALDs are available, from small personal systems to sophisticated systems used in theaters and auditoriums. Call Audiology Innovations today to see how we can help you to rediscover life’s sounds!
