“Donna has been living with a hearing loss for much of her life and remembers the “light bulb moment” too well. Over 20 years ago, she finally decided that she needed to do something about her hearing and came to Aim Hearing and Audiology Services for help. As soon as she walked into the clinic, she recognized how “extremely helpful, professional, and friendly” the whole team is. After having a cochlear implant fitted and a new pair of hearing aids, it changed her life in many ways and “opened up a new world.” She encourages others to take the first step, adding, “If they have any question about their hearing, they MUST go to Aim Hearing.” Donna rates her experience with Aim Hearing and Audiology Services as 10/10.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Cochlear Implant?
A cochlear implant can either work alongside hearing aids or in place of them.
It is an electronic device that compensates for the damaged part of the inner ear and provides the sound signals to your brain as opposed to simply amplifying the sound like hearing aids.
Although the implants do not cure hearing loss, they do provide the wearer with the sensation of sound.
What are the benefits of Cochlear Implants?
The most significant benefit is the increased sensation of sound, which makes hearing much more natural.
Other benefits include:
- Hearing conversations and sounds at a comfortable level
- Being able to keep your voice at a comfortable level for yourself and others
- Being able to comfortably speak on the phone or listen to music
Who are Cochlear Implants for?
Cochlear implants can be for both adults and children.
With younger children that may be born deaf or have a severe hearing loss, experts recommend that they are implanted as early as possible in order to not disturb their natural development.
With adults, they’re mainly for adults that were not born deaf but developed a hearing loss with age, having the most success with adults that developed their language before becoming deaf (prelingually deafened).
