Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Assistive Listening Devices
At ClearLife Hearing Care we are uniquely situated to recommend ALD’s, because we get to work with our patients in their regular environment. So if they are having trouble hearing the TV or telephone, doorbell, or alarm clock, we can assess the situation. In many cases we set up ALD’s in the home for our patients, and instruct them on how to use them.
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids can be wirelessly connected to devices such as televisions, cell phones, FM systems, GPS systems, and PDAs, with the use of Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth technology works similarly to wireless Internet, where sounds are sent through an invisible electronic signal.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
There are many steps that are part of a hearing evaluation. If you suspect that you might need a hearing aid, you will first need to have a hearing evaluation. At the time of the hearing evaluation, a case history will be taken to determine how much your hearing problem impacts your day-to-day life as well as the lives of your family.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
House Call Hearing Services
Hearing loss is a problem that has a significant impact on quality-of-life, and at ClearLife Hearing Care we believe that limited mobility, a busy schedule, or an aversion to a sterile clinical office should not be limitations to better hearing.
Invisible Hearing Aids
At ClearLife Hearing Care, we will listen to you to understand what you desire most in a hearing aid, whether that’s small size, cost, or a line-up of the most advanced features. Invisible hearing aids add a new dimension for all users to explore, even those that have been users for years
Musician's Ear Plugs and Monitors: Evaluation and Fitting
Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
Senior Facility Services
We provide our services to senior centers throughout the DFW metroplex. Services include hearing aid cleanings, battery changes, and outer ear inspections free of charge to residents. Periodically we do large-scale hearing screenings, also free of charge. In many of the senior centers we work with, we also provide comprehensive audiological care for residents. This allows us to pass on savings from reduced travel time to our patients, and also provides them with convenient access to high-quality ongoing care.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus is described as a ringing in the ear, and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation can help you identify how much tinnitus interferes with your daily life and if there are treatment options that can benefit you.
