When you live with hearing loss, you're missing more than just your hearing. You're missing your connection to life.
Improved quality of life is so important and many people who now have cochlear implants say they enjoy talking on the phone, listening to music and socializing with family and friends again. Being able to hear alarms and traffic when crossing the street are sounds that can make you feel safer as well.
Do you qualify for a cochlear implant?
Cochlear implants are approved for adults with moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears who are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids. For some people, using hearing aids with a moderate to profound hearing loss can be like listening to a loud, badly tuned radio. It may be loud enough to hear parts of what is being said, but the words are not clear. Cochlear implants are designed to provide clearer sound and help you understand what is being said.
A hearing health professional who specializes in all types of hearing technology, including implantable hearing solutions, will be able to advise if you may benefit from a cochlear implant. Find one today.
Note: Wearing hearing aids first is a necessary step in the evaluation process for a cochlear implant.
