What are Hearing Aids?
Hearing aids or hearing devices are an FDA regulated wearable sound amplification device designed to compensate for hearing loss. There are various classifications of hearing devices depending on their complexity and usage. The FDA is working towards expanding hearing services and products by creating a new category, Over The Counter (OTC) devices. The FDA is still establishing proper labeling, sales, and safety regulations for OTC devices. *This will not change other classifications, such as prescriptive devices. It also does not apply to services. Read more about OTC and other hearing device technology here.
What You Get at HearCare
At HearCare Audiology Center we work with prescriptive hearing device technology. This means we fit the devices to your specific hearing loss and are able to digitally customize your settings on a frequency specific scale. Non-prescriptive devices, such as amplifiers, or self-adjusting hearing aids, are designed specifically for mild up to moderate hearing loss in adults over the age of 18. They amplify sound on a general level and are not prescriptive. Think of it like prescriptive glasses from a Doctor of Optometry versus generic reading glasses from a retail store. Like glasses, sometimes the generic options from the store work well enough for your needs, but other times you really need a custom prescription or some professional care.
