You’ve gotten used to living without certain things. You tend to lose track of conversations in noisy environments, and don’t like going to the movies because you can’t hear what the actors are saying. But while you may be able to live without the noise of traffic out your window, you don’t want to give up hearing your children or grandchildren—and lately, you can barely hear anything at all.
You would probably never have gone this long if you couldn’t see, so why should it be acceptable for you to be unable to hear?
You Should Live Your Life With All Five of Your Senses
Many people who choose to get treatment for hearing loss do so to rediscover the pleasures of life, such as gathering with friends and family, feeling more confident at work, and enjoying films, music, and TV programs. But the ability to hear sounds and speech aren’t just luxuries—they are necessary for people to interact with their surroundings. The ability to hear can improve your life, but can also protect you from hearing degeneration that can lead to serious medical problems, including balance issues, dementia, and depression.
Collier Otolaryngology Hearing Center is dedicated helping patients of all ages enjoy life more abundantly. Our staff includes doctors, board-certified audiologists, and hearing care specialists to provide you with professional and comprehensive hearing health care and treatment.
Our audiology staff can help with every step of the hearing restoration process, including:
- Hearing Testing and Screening. If you think you may be suffering from hearing loss, the first step is to see your local Collier Otolaryngology Hearing Center specialist for a hearing test. As always, it is FREE to have your hearing tested at Collier Hearing. Our hearing care team can assess your condition to determine the type and extent of your hearing loss, and prescribe the right treatment for you based on your specific needs.
- Hearing Aid Devices. We offer a wide variety of hearing aid models and styles to correct almost any type of hearing condition. Patients can choose from behind-the-ear models, in-the-ear hearing aids, or devices that fit entirely in the ear canal. There are also a range of accessibility options, including programmable automatic devices that require no manual adjustments and devices that offer manual control over volume and performance modes. Our hearing healthcare professionals will be happy to walk you through your choices and help you choose the device that is right for you.
- Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance. Our specialists can perform regular maintenance and cleaning services for your device, and can perform diagnostic testing to ensure that your hearing aid is delivering the best possible sound. If your device has stopped working, we can also perform repairs, and can service, reset, or reprogram most top hearing aid brands.
- Tinnitus Evaluation and Relief. If you are able to hear a noise in your ears that sounds like it’s coming from inside your ear, you may be suffering from tinnitus. Tinnitus—also described as a ringing in the ears—is a common side effect of hearing loss. Sounds can include a roaring, buzzing, hissing, humming, or whistling noise, and may be loud or soft, and either constant or intermittent. We can help you find a permanent solution to your tinnitus, allowing you to hear yourself think for the first time in years.
