The Perfect Prescription Hearing Aids Expertly Chosen With You
I’m sure you didn’t grow up looking forward to when you could wear your first pair of prescription hearing aids, but with the most recent studies suggesting that 1 in every 8 people aged 12 or older have some form of hearing loss in both ears, prescription hearing aids are a staple part of caring for your hearing health.
But although there are stigmas attached to prescription hearing aids, the old clunky devices that you may remember are a thing of the past, with the latest developments in hearing technology now making hearing aids small, sleek and practically invisible.

The Different Styles of Prescription Hearing Aids
Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) – Tiny & Often Invisible
If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, then IIC Hearing Aids are custom-fitted and come in a choice of colors. IICs are unique as they’re inserted deep into the ear canal, so depending on your ear shape, they’re often invisible when worn. This is a huge advantage for the style-conscious wearer
Completely-In-Canal (IIC) – Mostly Invisible
Unlike the IICs, these aids are comfortably inserted and extracted from your ear, with the small “handle” peeping out the side. They are custom-made and mostly invisible, as well as coming in a range of colors to match the skin-tone of your inner ear. They’re the perfect choice if you have mild to moderate hearing loss.
ITC hearing aids feature a custom-fit, skin-matching colors, and can be inserted and extracted with ease. Made to look as if they are a part of your natural ear, these aids are the perfect choice if your hearing is diminishing at a steady pace. Suitable for mild to mildly severe hearing losses.
Mildly severe to severe hearing loss may find ITE hearing aids beneficial due to their sleek design that fits perfectly to the ear’s outer entrance. They are incredibly comfortable to wear and offer maximum hearing coverage. Available in a variety of colors, they’re custom made and can be matched to your skin tone.
Barely visible when worn, the RIC style is an instrument in which the receiver, or speaker, is inside the ear canal. Thin electrical wires are used instead of a plastic acoustical tube, reducing distortion. RIC hearing aids provide a comfortable, open fit and are perfect for mild to moderate hearing loss.
When you think “hearing aid” – the chances are you’re thinking of the BTE design. Usually worn by moderate to severe hearing loss, the technology is housed in the casing of these hearing aids, ensuring they rest comfortably behind the ear while the clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold that’s fitted inside the canal. Available in many different colors, they come with easy to use buttons and are highly discreet.
These sophisticated electronic devices are inserted deep inside someone’s ear via a simple surgical procedure. They’re prescribed to those with extensive damage to their cochlear, responsible for transmitting sound signals to their brain. They can be used alongside hearing aids if necessary. They are recommended to those with severe-to-profound hearing loss.
BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) Implants
Instead of responding to noises in the air, BAHA implants transmit sound information to someone’s brain via their bone structure. They’re not placed inside someone’s ear but sit on the side of their head, from where they stimulate their auditory nerves. Specialists will recommend this treatment to patients who have a severe-to-profound hearing loss.
