Hearing at Center For Sight
There are so many benefits to treating hearing loss with hearing aids. Better hearing allows you to communicate and connect with other people again. It can improve your relationships with family and friends, your interactions at work, your hobbies, and your overall quality of life. We love seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces when they realize how much easier it is to communicate and enjoy their lives with better hearing. It’s a rewarding experience for us and for our patients.
If you’re nervous about getting your hearing tested because you think you might be pushed into a hearing aids purchase or treatment decision, give us a try. Patients trust us because we never pressure you into a purchase. We’ll examine your ears fully, explain your hearing loss, and make recommendations based on your hearing needs, but ultimately the decision of what to do about your hearing loss is up to you. Your Clear Choice.
• Comprehensive hearing evaluations
• Hearing loss and tinnitus counseling
• Speech mapping
Why an Audiologist?
You’ve probably seen hearing aids advertised online or in the paper for what seems like a really great price. It is important to know that all hearing aids are not created equal and you also need to consider more than just the devices themselves. A hearing aid, even a high quality hearing aid, is only as good as the person who is fitting it on you. Your hearing healthcare provider must be able to address every patient’s unique needs. No two people have the same hearing situation.
Every hearing loss, ear size/shape, and listening needs are different. As a result, identical hearing aids may function quite differently for one person than another. A poorly fit, poorly prescribed hearing aid can end up being a detriment to your hearing instead of a help. It’s simply not worth the risk. Invest in yourself and trust a licensed, experienced audiologist to help you with your hearing needs.
Your First Appointment
We recommend that you bring someone with you, such as a spouse or family member, so we can give you a hearing aid demonstration while that person talks to you. If you’re listening to someone whose voice you know well, it’s easier to determine what the hearing aid’s benefit is. It’s also good to have a second set of eyes and ears as we go through the information about hearing aids, so you have someone to help you evaluate your options.
After you arrive and are greeted by our friendly staff, we’ll bring you back for your scheduled appointment and talk to you about your hearing history, what you’ve noticed recently, and anything else that may help us understand your situation. Then we begin the evaluation and the possibility of hearing aids.
While we do not accept insurance for hearing aids ourselves, we are happy to provide you with the necessary paperwork required to submit to your insurance for hearing aid reimbursement if coverage exists. We accept all major credit cards, including Alphaeon Credit and CareCredit, and have a 24 month no-interest financing plan available for our patients. Apply today!
Proud Partner of HearStrong
HearStrong was founded in 2013 with the goal of inspiring a mass hearing healthcare awareness movement. An estimated 48 million Americans experience hearing loss, and 80% of these individuals let it go unaddressed. This could be due to barriers such as social stigmas, financial difficulties, lack of awareness and resources, and more. In response to this need, HearStrong began recognizing and sharing the stories of remarkable people with hearing loss in an effort to empower and inspire others to take control of their hearing health. The HearStrong Foundation recognizes outstanding adults and children with hearing loss and gives them a platform to empower and serve others in need of hearing care. Learn More!
