Unfortunately, there are some people who do not find appropriate benefit from hearing aids. There are several factors that may impact successful adaptation to hearing aids. The following issues may prevent successful hearing aid use:
- Does the user have a good, comfortable fit?
- Does the user have realistic expectations regarding the limitations of hearing loss and the technology/style chosen?
- Do the hearing aids function properly?
- Did the user receive appropriate counseling regarding the effects of motivation, adaptation and consistent use of the device during their initial adjustment period?
The biggest key to success is consistency of use. The more the device is worn—in both quiet and complex environments—the more successful a person will be with hearing aids.
To ensure success with hearing aids, our audiologists work closely with the patient to ensure that these issues are addressed.
At Physicians’ Hearing Aid Center we offer a no-risk, 30-day adjustment period for all hearing aids purchased.
(Please note that it is required by law in Texas that a 30-day adjustment period be offered when purchasing hearing aids, regardless of place of purchase).
