The Benefits of a Hearing Aid
Hearing problems can develop in anyone over time, so it may at some point become important to see a Hearing Aid Audiologist. You’ll be examined in private and will be fitted with a hearing aid if required. There are many wonderful hearing devices out there on the market, so don’t feel embarrassed about booking a hearing test.Hey! You Don’t Have to Shout!
We’re exposed to noise all around us on a daily basis. From traffic and lawn tractors to jet planes and music, noise seems to be everywhere.

Ear pain is common in children and many parents are seeking remedies for an ear infection. Ear pain, crying, irritability, fever, dizziness, pulling on the ear, low appetite, and reduced activity can all be symptoms of an ear infection.

Telecoils have been around on BTE’s since the late 1940s.My Cochlear Implant (CI) Story
Since I have a Cochlear Implant (CI), I thought people might be interested in how it works for me and what it’s like to hear with one. I was implanted with my CI on 24 February 2005, my wife’s birthday. My CI was implanted into my right ear, which had been totally deaf for slightly over 20 years.
