According to recent statistics, hearing loss affects more than 30 million Americans. Because hearing loss occurs
gradually, the problem is often difficult to recognize. If you often ask people to repeat what they are saying, hear but dont understand, or turn the TV or radio up too loud, you may have a hearing loss.
In addition to providing hearing evaluations, EarCare provides a wide variety of audiological services, including industrial audiological monitoring, hearing aid evaluations and dispensing, hearing aid repairs for all makes and models, and special audiological diagnostics.
Hearing aids serve different purposes and needs. The goal of most hearing aid fittings is to make more speech sounds available to the listener. However, simply making sounds louder does not accomplish the goal! In 2005, most hearing aids process sounds to present specific speech information (sounds) to the listener, while reducing unwanted noises and sounds. In fact, with some hearing aid technology, such as; T-coils, FM systems, Directional Mics and Noise Reduction circuits, sometimes people wearing hearing aids can actually perceive a better speech signal than people not wearing hearing aids!
