Aiding without aids

Q:  As a 28 year old, there is no way I going to wear hearing aids.  What else can I do to hear better? 

A:  You can do some very non-hearing aid things in order to hear better.  Though I am curious to know why you are not willing to use them. Call me and we’ll discuss this.

   Until we visit together, consider these steps:

  1. Follow the ‘Golden Rules for Better Hearing’.  Available on our website, or call.
  2. Make sure your ears are not blocked.  Again, call us to check.
  3. Do not say, “I have a hearing problem.”  This usually encourages people to yell at you. 
  4. For TVs and radios, maximize the treble and minimize the bass to understand words better.
