Having an appointment with a professional hearing instrument specialist is equally as important as choosing the hearing aid that works best for you.
For your ears
Your hearing instrument specialist needs to be sure that the fit of your hearing aids are comfortable and working at the best level. It is important to wear your hearing aids each day. It’s like breaking in a new pair of shoes. Initially, they may be uncomfortable to wear, but once you break them in you may barely notice that you’re wearing them. Your hearing instrument specialist also wants to make sure that there are no pressure points that may cause pain or sores to your ears, while also ensuring that they are securely fit to reduce or prevent feedback and whistling noises.
For your personal lifestyle
It’s important to discuss what you want to get out of your hearing aids, and that involves catering to your hearing needs, everyday needs, and active lifestyle. Your hearing aid provider needs to make sure that you have the right hearing aid.
For your specific hearing needs
Your hearing instrument specialist must make the correct programming and sound quality adjustments for your hearing aid. They want to verify that the hearing aid has been properly programmed for your hearing loss and hearing needs. This process will allow the hearing instrument specialist to set up your hearing aids based on the sound environments that you are frequently in, making it simple and smooth when shifting to each setting.
Adjustments in the sound, programming or fitting for your hearing aid can be made in the office during the appointment for your hearing aid fitting.
