Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing Aid Repair
Remember that a hearing aid is essentially a very small computer with microchips and electronic components. These parts can occasionally go out. When this happens, the hearing aids are sent to the manufacturer for repair. The hearing aids come with repair warranties depending on the level of technology .If a hearing aid is no longer under repair warranty and needs to be sent to the manufacturer for repair, we will notify you first to get your approval. It is standard policy of our clinic to always get your authorization first if there are charges to be incurred.
Hearing Aid Maintenance
It is recommended that your hearing devices be checked on a regular basis preferably every six months. This will ensure that your hearing aids are working properly and within manufacturer's specifications. During the regular maintenance visit, the hearing aids will be thoroughly cleaned and checked for any signs of problems not related to the usual and regular wear and tear. If a problem is identified, it will be fixed.
Annual Hearing Evaluations
Annual hearing evaluations are recommended for everyone. It is important to have your hearing checked just as you have your eyes and teeth checked annually because good hearing is essential for your overall health and well being. Good hearing is your vital link to the world.
Annual hearing evaluations are especially recommended for our patients who wear hearing aids. It is a way for the audiologist to monitor your hearing and determine if there are any changes. If your annual hearing test results indicate some changes, your hearing devices would need to be adjusted.
