A patient came in last week and said something that really spoke to me.
He said, “I put my hearing aids in every morning to brighten my whole day. Once I put them in, my tinnitus is not so loud and I can hear my friends and family without asking them to repeat themselves multiple times in a conversation.”
As an audiologist, I talk all the time about the cognitive benefits and social benefits of wearing hearing aids. But, at the end of the day, wearing your hearing aids will simply “brighten your day”.
