Adjusting to your new hearing aids can take several weeks or even months. This process can be time consuming and frustrating. Your hearing device expert will encourage you to be patient with yourself as you become accustomed to the new amplified sounds. Keep in mind that hearing aids will not return your hearing to normal. They can improve your hearing by amplifying soft sounds and by reducing loud background noises.

Hearing aids are considered to be a class one medical device that is regulated by the FDA. The FDA has rulings in almost all fifty states that require you to provide a hearing aid seller a statement signed by a doctor that confirms you have had a medical evaluation for your hearing loss within the past six months, before you purchase a hearing device from them. Online companies may sell hearing aids directly to adults online, if the buyer approves a medical waiver. The potential customer must be informed that agreeing to a waiver, is not in their best interest. Some individuals are confident in online testing.
