Your hearing aid fit appointment will involve several visits to include the hearing aid fit and verification, follow up and adjustment. Once the correct solution for your hearing loss is chosen, your hearing aid fit appointment will be scheduled. The hearing aid fit appointment involves the technical aspects of programming, fine tuning and adjusting for physical comfort as well as learning to use and care for your hearing aids.
We begin by verifying the comfort of the hearing aids, which can be modified in the office as needed. Once the physical fit is optimized, your aids are programmed according to your hearing loss. Based on the quality of sound from this initial programming, some fine tuning is usually done to make the aids comfortable and as natural sounding as possible. Often times the aids are programmed softer than the optimal response at the initial fitting to allow for your auditory system to adjust to hearing again. Additional programming is common at follow-up appointments as you become more experienced with hearing again. We also discuss realistic expectations for the first days of use.
Once programming is completed, we review and practice how to insert and remove the aids properly, how to clean and maintain the aids, how to use any accessories like a charger for rechargeable models. Many hearing aids today are Bluetooth compatible, work with smartphones, and have apps that allow the user to make adjustments when needed. In these cases we will connect your aids to your phone and review features and functions of apps compatible with your aids.
