There are many common causes of hearing loss. Some include but are not limited to - health conditions, age, injury, and excessive noise. Hearing loss can take a damaging effect on your relationships, job focus, and most of all, emotional well-being. At the Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center of Fredericksburg, VA, we can offer hearing aids to you depending on your level of loss, and customize features based on your personal needs.
Signs of Hearing Loss
- You think the volume on the radio or TV is standard, but others are telling you it's too loud.
- If you have trouble following a conversation in large crowds, you may be in the early stage of hearing loss.
- You often ask people to repeat themselves.
Hearing loss can have a significant impact on your life. If you experience any of the symptoms above, visit the Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center as soon as possible. We have several different styles and varieties of hearing aids available to treat your symptoms.
How Do Hearingvs Work?
A hearing aid is a battery-powered, electronic device that is small enough to fit around your ear or both ears. Designed to improve the quality of hearing, they make some sounds louder and can help you hear better when it's quiet or noisy.
What Styles of Hearing Aids are Available?
If you are struggling to hear sounds clearly, we offer at least six different hearing aid methods such as,
- Behind-the-ear: a hearing aid within a case that fits behind the ear.
- In-the-ear: is a hearing aid held within a case covering the outer portion of the ear.
- In-the-canal: fits fully or partially into the ear canal for less visibility.
- Receiver-in-canal: the speaker sits inside the ear canal, and an electrical wire is used to minimize distortion.
- Extended wear: we place these inside the ear canal, and they can be worn for months at a time.
