You can count on the Credit Valley Audiology & Hearing Services to find the perfect hearing aid to fit for your hearing needs, your lifestyle, and your budget.
What Are Hearing Aids?
Hearing aids are small electronic devices that fit around the ear and inside the ear cavity, and offer amplification that helps those with hearing loss experience better hearing.
All hearing aids are composed of 5 basic parts: microphones, an amplifier, a loudspeaker, a battery, and a computer chip that the audiologist will program to ensure the individual hears the way they want to.

Your Hearing Aid Fitting
Once you and your audiologist have settled on a hearing aid for you, the next step is to fit it to suit your hearing needs.
To confirm that your hearing aids are providing the correct level of amplification, your audiologist will perform tests called Real Ear Measures. First, a thin tube will be inserted into your ear canal. This tube is connected to a microphone that will measure the volume of sound near your eardrum without a hearing aid in your ear. The audiologist will then program your hearing aid accordingly.
Once the fitting is complete, your audiologist will review hearing aid care and maintenance with you. You will practice tasks like inserting the hearing aids and changing the batteries here in our office, so you'll know how to do it at home.
Adjustments & Repairs
It can be hard to tell if a hearing aid works for you until you've lived with it for a while. For this reason, we welcome our patients to visit us as often as they need to for hearing aid adjustments.
If, over time, you encounter a problem with your hearing aid, we're happy to help. We will examine your hearing device, offer you an honest assessment of its overall condition, and repair it for you, if possible.
