Hearing aids do not completely restore your hearing however at Butterfly Audiology we make sure that we work with each client to ensure they achieve the best possible outcomes to improve the quality of their life.
When you get hearing aids for the first time, you hear a lot more sound than you have for a long time. This includes hearing peoples voices much more clearly but also sounds that you do not necessarily want to hear (eg. Your own footsteps, traffic noise). It usually takes some time (up to several months) and consistent use of your hearing aids to learn how to filter out unwanted sounds and focus on what you want to hear.
At your initial hearing assessment your audiologist will take a lot of time to discuss your individual hearing needs. What are the main situations that you want to hear better in? Do you often go out to noisy environments like restaurants? Do you have trouble hearing the television? Is hearing on the phone a problem for you? This information then allows the audiologist to recommend which level of hearing aid technology is best suited to your needs. The audiologist will also work out with you what style of hearing aid you are best able to manage and what is cosmetically acceptable to you.
After your initial hearing aid fitting we recommend at least one follow-up appointment to ensure that the hearing aid settings are optimised, you are managing your hearing aids and they are meeting your needs. The initial fee you pay for your hearing aids and fitting include all follow-up appointments over the first year, batteries and servicing/cleaning of the hearing aids in the first year.
After the first year we recommend an annual appointment to check your hearing and adjust your hearing aid settings for any changes. We offer a yearly membership which includes your annual hearing and hearing aid review, trouble shooting appointments throughout the year as required, replacements ear moulds as required, 12 months supplies of batteries, 12 months supply of other consumables (domes, wax filters, etc.) All hearing aid cleaning, servicing and repairs and loan service if your hearing aid needs to be sent away for repair. Please speak to one of our friendly staff to find out more.
