Hearing Aids Near Homewood, AL

Is it Time for Hearing Aids?

If you’re experiencing hearing loss, then it’s important not to wait until it becomes a serious issue. Lacking hearing ability puts you and those you love around you at risk; hearing is essential for many everyday functions and safety that people tend to take for granted. Thankfully, our talented staff of hearing aid professionals is here to guide you through these troubles.


Hearing Aid Clinical Visit

First, you will be asked about how and when your hearing loss came about, how it has impacted your overall lifestyle and health, and you will complete a basic questionnaire. There, you will undergo a comprehensive ear, nose, and throat evaluation.

A hearing test, known as an audiogram, will be performed in a soundproof booth with headphones that will allow your ENT specialist to judge the severity of your hearing loss. This is important to decide what hearing aids will be best for you. The full process usually takes less than an hour.

Much hearing loss is related to aging; as the nerves may not be able to be repaired or addressed surgically, it is important to consider all of the options available to restore proper hearing so that you can go back to enjoying your life.

Hearing Aids

We Offer A Variety
Of Hearing Aids

  • CIC or completely in the canal hearing aids are molded to fit inside the ear canal. CIC hearing aids are perfect for adults with mild and moderate hearing loss.

  • ITC or in-the-canal hearing aids are custom-molded but only fit partly in the ear canal. ITC hearing aids are larger than the CIC, but still less visible, and they are ideal for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. They also have more features than the CIC hearing aids.

  • ITE or in-the-ear hearing aids have two styles to choose from: either filling most of the outer ear's bow-shaped area or only the lower part. Both styles work well for those with mild to severe hearing loss.

  • BTE or behind the ear hearing aids are usually what one thinks of when thinking of hearing aids. The BTE hearing aids hook over the tip of the ear to rest behind it. It is suitable for any hearing loss, has a variety of features, and can be more amplified than the other hearing aids.

  • RIC, receiver in canal, or RITE, receiver in the ear have tiny wires connecting the receiver to the hearing aid, making the RIC hearing aid less visible.
