Your sense of hearing is vital to living a full and complete life. If you have trouble hearing or rely on hearing aids, your hearing specialist will become a very important part of your life. You may want to ask your hearing specialist the following four questions:
1. What Type of Hearing Loss Do I Have? There are different kinds of hearing loss and different degrees of impairment. Finding out what kind of loss you have, and the level of your deafness will help you and your hearing specialist determine the kind of treatment and the type of hearing aids you need. The more you know about your hearing loss, the better prepared you will be to treat it.
2. What Are My Treatment Options? Just as there are different kinds of hearing loss, there are different treatment options to restore your hearing and get you back to living the life you want. Hearing aids, surgery, and other therapies can help you to function with your hearing loss. Ask your hearing specialist for all your options before you decide what you want to do.
3. What Kind of Hearing Aids Could Help Me? Your personal needs and considerations will determine the kind of hearing aid you need. To find out exactly what kind of device will restore your hearing, ask your hearing specialist whether you need an over-the-ear hearing aid or one that goes inside your ear canal.
4. What Can I Do To Prevent Further Hearing Loss? Ask your hearing specialist how to protect your hearing. There may be things you can do to prevent more hearing loss, or slow the progression of your loss. You may be able to find out how to prevent hearing loss in your children as well.
