When you are first fitted with a hearing device, you might hear a little too much! This is because you have adjusted over time to having less hearing. It takes time to adjust to hearing devices—restoring lost hearing is a slower process than vision restoration as the brain needs to be retrained to adapt to the new levels of sound.
A little persistence goes a long way
The more you wear your hearing devices, the more sounds you will hear. And these will gradually become part of your everyday life. To help support you on this journey, we at National Hearing Care have implemented an acclimatisation program that we all encourage our clients to participate in so that they can gradually get used to their hearing devices.
