Prescription Hearing Aid Cleaning and Repair
Hearing aids are complex devices that may require repairs and maintenance over time. If you notice any issues with your hearing aids, it is important to schedule an appointment with your hearing care professional for an assessment. Common problems include no sound, unhinged battery doors, and exposure to moisture, wax, debris, or physical damage. Your hearing care professional is trained and equipped to diagnose and repair hearing aid problems. Some repairs can be done in-office, while others may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing care professional will work with you and the manufacturer to ensure that your hearing aids are repaired and returned to you as quickly as possible.
As with any technology though, users must be aware that they will change over time after continued use. This is even more true for prescription hearing aids because they are a wearable form of technology, so things like wax, debris, and moisture will most likely naturally build up over time. Along with this, it also possible for a patient’s overall hearing ability to change over time for many reasons like age, environment, or even stress levels. So, prescription hearing aids must be cleaned regularly to improve the overall quality and lifespan of the device(s). Having to clean your prescription hearing aids (especially for the first time) at Vanguard Hearing Center in Garden City, Michigan may be a bit daunting, which is completely understandable given that hearing aids are delicate and expensive devices.
