Hearing aids are assistive devices that are fitted to a person with a degree of hearing loss that interferes with communication and reduces stimulation to the brain. There are a wide range of makes, models and styles of hearing aids. Hearing aids are selected according to the specific needs of the hearing-impaired person. Choosing the correct hearing aid at the outset is very important to ensure that the hearing-impaired individual wears the hearing aid consistently and regularly. I prescribe 3 brands of hearing aids. Widex, Oticon and Signia.
