Park Lane Speech and Hearing offer the following Hearing Aid services:
Hearing Aid Dispensing
Once a permanent hearing loss has been identified by your audiologist, a hearing aid fitting may be recommended. A hearing aid is a highly sophisticated communication device. Technology has advanced so significantly in the past few years and continues to advance, that most hearing aids are discreet, comfortable and affordable. There are many different types of hearing aids, just as there are many forms of hearing loss. The design and technology can vary but the overall effect is to empower you to live your life to the very fullest!
In our practice, all patients are presented with a variety of hearing aid options that suit their particular audiological needs, lifestyle and financial means. In addition, all patients undergo a 'demo' trial period with the hearing aids to ensure that they have ample time to make an informed decision about their choice of device. There is NO CHARGE for the demo trial period.
Hearing aids with bluetooth technology use todays wireless technology to help you easily stay connected to IOS and Android phones, televisions, tablets and other favourite audiio devices by streaming sound diirectly to your hearing aids.
Rechargeable Hearings Aids
Hearing Aids are now just as easy to charge as your cell phone! At last hearing aids users are able to free themselves from the hassles of disposable hearing aid batteries. Most hearing aids can give up to 24 hours of hearing performance with one simple charge.
Hearing Aid Accessories
Our practice offers a range of hearing aid batteries in all sizes, hearing aid cleaning tools, dri- aid capsules and hearing aid dehumidifiers, hearing aid cleaning wipes and hearing aid battery testers. We also stock ear wax cleaning solutions.
“Hearing aids make annoying whistling noises.”
The truth: Hearing aids now feature sophisticated technology that virtually eliminates irritating screeching or whistling, known as 'feedback'. Hearing aids should not 'whistle' in the ears, unless they are being touched. There are many reasons why a hearing aid gives 'feedback', if it does, the device should be checked by your audiologist.
“They’re more trouble than they’re worth.”
The truth: Everyone’s experience is different. Your brother or your friend or your co-worker may not have gotten the results they expected, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a good solution out there for you. Wearing a hearing aid for the first time is an adjustment, but it is well worth the effort – especially with today's modern technology at our disposal and the positive effect it can have on our overall well being and quality of life.
“Hearing aids will affect my tinnitus (ringing in the ears)”
The truth: For those that have a hearing loss and tinnitus, hearing aids can assist in reducing the effects of the tinnitus. Providing stimulation to the auditory system via hearing aids, may help the brain to 'turn down' its sensitivity and cease to seek out the stimulation it is lacking due to the hearing loss.
