Benefits of Hearing Aids

When confronted with hearing loss, many of us tend to put off obtaining treatment due to misconceptions about hearing aids. Concerns about hearing instruments being unsightly or “looking old” are most common, as are apprehensions about adjusting to the technology or fear of financial requirements.

Happily, modern hearing assistance technology has come a long way. Today’s hearing aids are sleek, discreet and natural-sounding. Hearing aid manufacturers offer elegant, effective, invisible, easy to use devices to meet the needs of any patient.

Improving hearing clarity is easier and more stress free than you may think. Once your level of hearing impairment has been identified by your Audiologist, your communication needs and choice of solutions are reviewed based on your individual requirements. Every patient is different.

Your hearing instruments will be personally fit and adjusted specifically to your needs. Thanks to advances in technology, most patients report becoming accustomed to their new devices almost immediately! The improvement in hearing clarity is often a pleasurable surprise.

Typically, hearing aids can be expected to last from 3 to 5 years. Depending on each individual, it is a good idea to have them checked about once a year to see if adjustments or ear wax removal are required.

The cost of hearing aids do not have to cause a financial burden. You can significantly improve your hearing for less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day! Private health insurance, payment plans and Government assistance plans such as the Ontario Assistive Devices program may apply.

Jerry and Lorraine Laufman at the Lincoln Hearing Clinic welcome your questions about advances to hearing assistance technology. For more information or to book a hearing consultation, visit or call 905-563-HEAR (4327).
