Hearing Aid Choices for the Deaf
This is an exciting time for people who have little or no hearing, who are functionally deaf. You should contact your doctor or hearing care professional to see if a power hearing aid or other options may be right for you. One of the modern miracles of science has been the creation of a device, the cochlear implant, which allows many deaf people to hear. This is not a typical hearing aid designed for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. The cochlear implant is an electronic device that is surgically implanted into the skull with a tiny wire that is slipped into the cochlea, the organ of hearing. An external hearing aid is worn that connects magnetically to the implant. Once it is implanted, it will still take several months for the site to heal before the device is turned on. Many people have experienced great results with the cochlear implant. When you visit a centre that does implants, you will be given a thorough evaluation to see if an implant would be appropriate for you. Implant centres can put you in contact with successful users so they can share their experience with you. If a Cochlear implant is not right for you, there may be other options. A cochlear implant, a hearing aid for someone who is deaf, can provide sound to someone that has never heard sound before. It can also work well for someone who has lost their hearing over time. With so many advancements being made in hearing science, it is important to work closely with an audiologist to make a personal plan to help you gain hearing if you are deaf or suffering from severe hearing loss.
