How well do hearing aids work?

Hearing aids have been proven to greatly improve your hearing, but it isn’t always a quick fix; many people who are new to wearing hearing aids think the process will be much like wearing glasses; you pop them on and all is well again. However, wearing hearing aids is completely different – the brain needs to adapt to the new hearing aids you are wearing in order for you to hear clearly again, and although this can often happen relatively quickly, it usually takes a while to completely get used to wearing them. Hearing aids help with hearing loss, but don’t restore normal hearing.

If you are wondering how well hearing aids work because you believe you may be experiencing hearing loss, book a hearing test at Scrivens and speak to one of our Hearing Aid Audiologists. If hearing aids are required, you will be able to choose which ones are best for you, then it is time to get used to wearing them in real-life, day-to-day situations. When you have worn your hearing aids out in public, for example, or whilst having conversations with friends and family members, you will begin to get used to wearing them and be able to hear things more clearly.
