Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing aids are comprised of tiny electrical components that may experience wear and tear over time. Our office will send a reminder card for a Hearing Aid Check-up Appointment every 6 months, for the audiologist to thoroughly clean and evaluate the function of your hearing aids. If the units have been exposed to moisture, excessive wax, debris or physical damage, the routine service by the audiologist will help ensure the aids are functioning properly.
Common Hearing Aid Issues
You may try to turn the hearing aid on in the morning and find that there is no sound or you may find that the battery door has come unhinged. These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. If you should experience an issue that requires a repair, schedule an appointment with the audiologist. Many minor hearing aid repairs can be done in our office or a hearing aid may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair.
