Auckland, New Zealand (PressExposure) May 07, 2012 -- The survey asked 500 users of hearing aids how long it took them to get used to their hearing aids, whether their hearing aids made a positive difference in their lives, and whether they'd recommend other people with hearing difficulties try hearing aids. 88% of respondents stated their hearing aids do make a difference.
For Aucklanders, the situation is no different, as the team at the Hearing Technology clinic has over 20 years experience successfully treating hearing problems with hearing aids.
"Hearing aids are much more advanced than people think," says John Robertson, Director and Qualified Audiometrist. "These days, hearing aids are programmed for individual needs. A tiny inbuilt computer automatically makes adjustments to minute sound changes."
He says it can take people a few days to a month to get used to their hearing aids. Modern hearing aids are more accessible than ever and hearing aid users are finding there is less of a stigma attached to wearing hearing aids than they first thought.
Hearing loss is one of the most severe disabilities in terms it's effect on an individual's social interaction. The problem with hearing loss is that it occurs gradually, over months and years, so you don't notice it. It can take several years for you to recognise the symptoms - maybe when a friend points out how loud you've got the TV - and by then, the damage can be severe.
However, most people with hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids, and 94% of people surveyed say they recommend hearing aids to other people with hearing loss.
