A Simplified Alternative To Over-The-Counter Hearing Aids In North Houston

When it comes to making a purchasing decision, most people look for convenience as a priority. If it takes more effort than it’s worth, then you’re likely to walk away and find something better.

Therefore, it was no surprise that federal government passed an act in 2017 allowing the sale of over-the-counter hearing aids.

After noticing that convenience was a main factor that held people back from purchasing hearing devices, they wanted to make it easier for people to get help with their hearing.

However, just like anything that’s convenient, it comes with a huge downfall…

“The experience was great. The receptionist was very nice and helpful getting me started. The doctor was very helpful in explaining everything. Overall the visit was quite pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend their facilities.”

Tom Miller

“I had a great experience with this facility. The office was clean and they disinfected their tools often. The audiologist was thorough and diagnosed me quickly. I am going to have to go with my health plan because their hearing aids are more reasonable. I am sorry I wasted their time. Thank you.”

Venida Mapp

“My son has difficulty hearing with his right ear. The doctor was very caring and professional. Staff was nice and helpful. Would recommend her to anyone who in needs of hearing problems.”

Five Reasons Why We Don’t Advise Over-The-Counter (OTC) Hearing Aids

#1 – You Miss The First Step: A Hearing Assessment

You wouldn’t purchase a pair of glasses without getting an eye test, so why do the same for your hearing? A hearing assessment helps us to understand your hearing requirements, allowing us to work out what type of hearing technology is going to be beneficial for you. Without a proper hearing assessment, it’s hard for us to know your level of hearing loss, i.e., moderate or severe.

#2 - Your Ears Are Not Professionally Examined

Using our expert equipment, we can examine your ears at a level that isn’t visible to the human eye. It could be that you have a buildup of wax, or perhaps there’s a more serious issue going on. Whatever it is, we can get to the root of the problem quickly. Taking a look inside your ears seems like an obvious step, but it is one that is skipped in the OTC purchase process.

#3 - Do You Know How to Custom Fit Your Hearing Aids?

It isn’t as easy as buying a pair of hearing aids and putting them in. There is a process involved that ensures your devices fit perfectly to fit your ears, ensuring that they don’t feel loose or fall out. Would you feel comfortable fitting your hearing aids? Audiologists have studied for many years to allow them to serve patients. By purchasing OTCs, you are risking the health of your ears.

#4 - Forget Support, You’re On Your Own

Sure, purchasing over-the-counter hearing aids is definitely easy, but once you’ve reached for your wallet, you’re on your own. Forget long-term care and support from a medical professional. Instead, get used to manic googling and trying to find non-contactable numbers to speak to someone.

#5 - Make Sure To Keep An Eye On Your Hearing Aids

If you have kids, then you’ll know that you have to keep a watchful eye on everything, as they may pick it up or break it. Be prepared to keep your eagle eye on your devices at all times, as you won’t be covered for loss or damage with OTCs.
