How many times have you heard the comparison that hearing aids are to ears what glasses are to eyes?
There’s a stigma associated with hearing aids that doesn’t exist for glasses. While glasses have become fashion accessories, hearing aids are still anything but cool... despite being equipped with next generation features and technology.
Here’s why hearing aids are not like glasses:
When you wear glasses or contacts, there’s a chance that your vision worsens because of them. The glasses do some of the work for the muscles in your eyes and your eyes can get lazy. Wearing hearing aids, however, will not worsen your hearing. Hearing aids are designed to stimulate more nerves in your ear than your natural hearing does on its own. Your brain actually works harder while wearing hearing aids than it does without them.
