Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are small, battery-operated amplifiers worn in the ear. Small microphones are used to pick up sounds in the environment. These sounds are then made louder so the user can hear these sounds better. Hearing aids do not restore your hearing to normal. They do not prevent the natural deterioration of hearing, nor cause further deterioration in hearing ability. However, hearing aids often improve one’s ability to communicate in everyday situations.
