Prescription Hearing Aids

Hearing instruments are very specific to a given person's needs. Therefore, it is very important that you work with a hearing care professional to determine the proper amplification needed for your situation. Based upon the results of your hearing test, your listening demands and your lifestyle needs, the professional will prescribe a hearing instrument for you. It is strongly not suggested that you borrow someonelse's hearing instrument as it may not fit you properly or be appropriate for your hearing loss.

In fact, using a hearing instrument that is not prescribed for you can be detrimental. First, hearing instruments of all styles need to be molded to the physical shape of your ear. If you use an instrument that hasn't been custom fit (whether it's a custom in the ear product or the earmold of a behind-the-ear instrument), it can cause pain. The other concern is if a person uses a hearing instrument that is too strong for their loss, they could damage their hearing further.
