Hearing Professional Paducah KY

Why You Should See A Hearing Professional

Hearing loss is commonly referred to as an invisible health condition, and early warning signs are often overlooked. Unlike other medical conditions, you can’t physically see the signs of hearing loss. Often the most difficult step in improving your hearing is recognizing you need help.

Hearing loss can develop at any age and can be caused by a number of different factors. Individuals with hearing loss often have difficulty following conversations and understanding the voices of women and children. Most complain that people mumble or talk too fast and many also experience tinnitus, a high-pitched ringing in the ears.

Less than 5 percent of hearing loss in adults can be treated medically or surgically, which means 95 percent of adults with hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids. Hearing aids are high-tech devices that help compensate for a loss of frequency by amplifying sounds and helping replace inaudible high-frequency sounds by replicating them with audible low-frequency sounds. Hearing aids today are small and incredibly powerful, available in a variety of options from invisible solutions that fit deep inside your ear to wireless Behind-The-Ear options that stream audio directly from your television, radio or telephone.

If you’ve noticed a change in your own hearing or the hearing of a loved one, the next step is to schedule a complete hearing evaluation with a hearing care professional like Tim Harmon at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah, KY.

You may be wondering why it’s important to see a hearing professional when there are other options to purchase hearing aids online or at a big box store. You may also consult with friends, read online reviews, sort through detailed product descriptions, or ask for input on social media sites. Consumer data is just a click away on your smartphone or tablet. Who you see for your hearing healthcare is an important decision.

Hearing professionals, like Tim Harmon at Purchase Ear Technology, are experts with the training and equipment necessary to inspect your ear, determine the degree and type of hearing loss, assess your unique listening needs, and prescribe hearing solutions to fit your lifestyle and budget. No person’s hearing loss is identical to another, and each person’s physical ear configuration is unique.

Only a licensed hearing professional can help you accomplish the following accurately:

  • Give accurate hearing examinations and safe ear cleanings
  • Determine your degree and type of hearing loss along with possible causes
  • Help identify the most appropriate hearing solution for your hearing loss and lifestyle needs
  • Work with you to ensure your hearing aid settings are working for your lifestyle, help with repair and maintenance, and help track your hearing loss for any signs of decline throughout the year

Hearing Aids Paducah KY

How Will Hearing Aids Improve My Quality Of Life

Hearing aids can provide valuable benefits to improve your quality of life in a number of important ways. They can help you to:

Hear better in situations that are important to you – Fully participate with family, friends and co-workers again.

Stay connected – Hearing loss can lead to isolation and depression. With hearing aids, you can connect with the world and regain your quality of life.

Avoid becoming a burden to those around you – Wearing a hearing aid can be a courtesy to others, reducing frustration and eliminating the need for them to raise their voices or repeat things to you.

Identify speech in noise – Hearing aids can improve the brain’s ability to process speech when there is competing background noise, like in a restaurant or crowd. Hearing aid technology continues to improve and hearing better in noise is a primary focus of the current hearing aid technology.

Stay sharp – Hearing loss contributes to reductions in cognitive and communication abilities — it can even be misdiagnosed as dementia. Hearing aids can help improve your abilities, keeping you on top of your game.

Be alert to what’s happening around you – Hearing enables you to sense alarms, sirens, traffic, telephones, doorbells and other important signals at home, work and in the community.

Work longer and earn more – Studies clearly demonstrate that untreated hearing loss can impact your success on the job, with even a mild hearing loss reducing earning potential. Using hearing aids can help you communicate successfully on the job so you maintain your productivity, professional standing and income.

Hearing Test Paducah KY

Why Have Your Hearing Tested?

“I hear perfectly fine.” “I don’t need a hearing aid.” “Everybody mumbles.” Lots of us have heard these excuses many times. If the people you love, say they can’t hear you, maybe it is time to get their hearing checked at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah, KY. There are plenty of good reasons why you should get your hearing tested.

#1 Untreated hearing loss could lead to cognitive decline

When your brain doesn’t receive the signals that it was expecting from the ear, It will start to borrow from other available resources to try and figure out what’s going on (like when you’re really trying to focus on understanding the story that little Jessica is telling you about her trip to the park). This means, other brain functions may now have fewer available resources to do their job. When untreated hearing loss is present for an extended period of time, this could potentially lead to cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s or dementia. Hearing aids can prevent this from happening, or at least delay the effects of hearing loss. So, if you do need a hearing aid, it’s a good idea to start by getting your hearing checked.

#2 There could be an underlying cause to your hearing loss

Hearing loss is not always caused by age or exposure to loud sounds it has many different origins. Diabetes is one – in fact, a study showed that people with diabetes were more than twice as likely to get a hearing loss as those without. Ear infections and cardiovascular diseases have also been linked to hearing loss – and, in very rare cases, so have tumors in the outer or middle ear.

#3 Untreated hearing loss can impact your social wellness and overall mental health

It’s not uncommon to want to stay home from the big family dinner when you can’t really follow the conversation anyway. A lot of people who don’t hear well have this feeling. But cutting ties with your social life could make you feel lonely, depressed or isolated. Research suggests that social support from your family and friends can decrease the risk of depression from untreated hearing loss, so it’s important to continue your social life. And, with hearing aids on, dinner with your family won’t be so exhausting!

#4 You can take action to hear better again

If you’re diagnosed with hearing loss, maybe you will be advised to get hearing aids. The good news is that hearing aids go a long way to restoring your hearing and keeping up your quality of life. Even if it seems unnecessary, a hearing aid can help the functions of your brain and prevent further hearing loss or any other effect of untreated hearing loss.

So, what are you waiting for?  Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah is here to help.  Tim Harmon and our friendly staff will treat you like family.  To schedule a hearing test, give us a call at (270) 558-3996, stop by our office located at 2008 Broadway, Paducah, KY or CLICK HERE to contact us!

Hearing Loss Increases Chance Of Accidental Injury

An analysis of data from the National Health Interview Survey found that, over an eight year period (2007 – 2015), people who reported that they had “a lot of trouble” hearing ended up being twice as likely to have an accidental injury,both at work and leisure, than  people who reported no trouble hearing.

While the study didn’t dig into what it was about hearing loss that led to these higher numbers, experts suspect the effects of sensory impairment played a role. Falls, too, which happen more frequently to people with hearing loss, certainly contribute to the increase.

Why does this matter? Because according to the National Health Report by the CDC, accidental injuries are among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the U.S.

But maybe a bigger “why it matters” is that if you have hearing loss and are wondering if you should treat it or not, this is one more fact to add to the “treat it!” side of your list.

Summer Gatherings – How To Get The Most Out Of Your Hearing Aids

Summertime is synonymous with barbecues and sunny social events outdoors. As we begin to resume our normal summer routines, here are a few tips to get the most out of your hearing aids when you are flipping burgers – or just enjoying an alfresco refreshment with your friends.

First of all: wear your hearing aids

Some people shy away from wearing their hearing aids at social gatherings. Often this is done out of a sense that hearing aids are somehow embarrassing. Or that wearing them is a sign of weakness. In fact, hearing aids are a tool to achieve something good, just like glasses.

Decades ago, when wearing glasses was a less common occurrence, kids would be bullied in school for wearing them. Not anymore. Today glasses are associated with intelligence. Even people with perfect vision wear glasses as a fashion statement. Soon the same may become true for hearing aids. So, don’t miss out on what’s going on out of shame. Don’t be that guy (or girl). Wear your hearing aids with pride.

Location is everything: find a good spot

At any social event where several people are talking at the same time, following the conversation can be challenging. Especially for new hearing aid users. Try positioning yourself in a spot that lets you see the person or people you are in conversation with. This will help you follow what is being said.

Miss something? Say something

It can often feel slightly embarrassing to ask someone to repeat what they just said or to speak a little louder. But don’t pretend to understand something you didn’t catch. Find the courage to say something if you can’t follow the conversation. You can also give visual cues to let people know if you are having trouble following the conversation. One way to do this is to cup your hand around your ear. This indicates to the speaker that you are having trouble hearing them. Often this will encourage the speaker to speak at a higher volume.

Try new technologies

Many modern hearing aids work with a variety of accessories that can help you hear better in challenging listening situations. Like hearing aids, these accessories cover a wide range of capabilities and technological sophistication. If you sometimes experience hearing difficulties in crowded social settings, consider talking to your hearing healthcare professional about trying a range of accessories for your hearing aids.

Tim Harmon and his staff at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah are here to help you with all of your hearing needs.  From hearing tests, to new hearing aids, repairs and maintenance, we can help.  You can reach us by phone at (270) 558-3996 or CLICK HERE to contact us.  Our office is conveniently located at 2008 Broadway, Paducah, KY.  At Purchase Ear Technology, you are more than a patient.  You are FAMILY!

Teach grandkids about hearing loss

Teach Your Grandkids About Hearing Loss

You love being a grandparent and you love your grandchildren. You especially love their inquisitive nature and all of the interesting questions they ask you – “Why is the sky blue?” or “What happened to the dinosaurs?” If you’re wearing hearing aids they may even ask you, “What are those things in your ears?” When the time comes, here are few pointers to teach your grandkids about hearing loss.

Explaining Hearing Loss

The first thing to do when teaching your grandchildren about hearing loss is letting them know you have it. In fact, telling your loved ones – including your grandkids – can help make living with hearing loss easier for everyone. For younger children, a simple explanation of “My ears do not work as well as they used to like when I was your age,” can be enough to satiate their curiosity. However, older grandchildren may inquire further and be interested in learning more about hearing loss.

If your older grandkids are showing curiosity about your hearing aids, there’s no need to shy away from explaining it to them. Let them know there is a problem with one or more parts of your ear and that your hearing is not working as well as it should. You can even explain that it is an age-related hearing loss, or that it is caused by another reason affecting the inner ear, middle ear, or outer ear.

This is also a good time to remind your grandchildren of the importance of protecting your ears throughout your life!

Show and Tell

Again, there’s no need to hide your hearing loss if your grandkids are curious. Conduct a mini show-and-tell with your grandchildren. Show them your hearing aid and explain to them how this device helps you hear better. Although it may look small, it is wearable technology, like a second set of ears!

Additionally, remind your grandchildren your hearing aids are only for you and are not to be worn by anyone else — including them. Everyone’s ears and hearing levels are different so your hearing aids are just for you! You may even tell them trying to wear your hearing aids would be like trying to wear someone else’s eyeglasses — everyone sees differently and it’s the same thing with hearing aids.

Teach Them How You Can Best Hear

Explain to your grandchildren it is much easier for you to hear them, and all of the exciting things they have to share, when they get your attention first. Remind them how difficult it can be to hear their Mom or Dad calling for them when they are busy playing or outside having fun with friends, but when their parents get their attention first it’s much easier to hear them. It’s the same thing with grandma or grandpa. Remind your grandchildren if you cannot see them, then you may not be able to hear them clearly.

Enlist their Help

Now that your grandchildren know you experience hearing loss, you can ask them to help you hear better when you are out together. Whether you are grocery shopping for a big family dinner or taking a car trip to the local zoo, enlist their help to “hear better,” with any announcements or updates that are made while you are out together.

Model Good Hearing Health

Teach your grandchildren the importance of practicing good hearing health throughout their lives. Keep the television volume low and the car radio at a normal volume, even if they ask you to turn it up and sing their favorite song. Explain the importance of taking care of their ears and their hearing health – and that the ability to hear is a gift.

Having hearing loss doesn’t mean you need to miss out on family fun, especially with your grandchildren. If you think you need a hearing aid, Tim Harmon at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah can help.

Five Reasons Your Hearing Aids May Be Whistling

Hearing aids whistle sometimes, just like your phone sometimes does when it’s too close to the radio. If you wear hearing aids, you’re going to experience whistling at some point. It can happen through something as simple as putting on a scarf. The whistling is called hearing aid feedback. Here’s what causes it and what you can do about it.

How does hearing aid feedback occur?

Hearing aid feedback occurs when sound that was supposed to go into your ear canal leaves your ear and jumps back into the hearing aid microphone. The sound then gets reamplified, and this causes your hearing aids to whistle.

This feedback can happen in different contexts, like when you put your hearing aids on in the morning and take them off in the evening, or when someone hugs you. This is perfectly normal because the hearing aids are reacting to the sound bouncing back from your surroundings.

Hearing aid feedback could also be a sign that something could be wrong with your hearing aids, or they need to be cleaned. In that case, give us a call at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah.

What causes my hearing aids to whistle and what can I do about it?

Many hearing aids come with feedback cancellation, but this doesn’t completely safeguard you from feedback.

A number of things can cause your hearing aids to whistle. Here are the most common reasons for feedback and how to resolve them.

A poor fit: Just like the rest of your body, your ears change over time. They may even change shape. If they do, the earmolds can become loose and do not seal properly. This means the sound gets away from your ear and back into your hearing aids’ microphones, and that causes feedback. To fix it, get new earmolds fitted to your ear. Weight gain or weight loss can also affect your ears and the fit of the earmolds.

In general, if your hearing aids are not put properly in your ear, it gives the sound a chance to escape and re-enter the hearing aid microphone, so make sure they are sitting nice and tight in your ear. You can always ask someone to check if it looks correct or see your hearing care professional.

Too high volume: It can sometimes be tempting to turn up the volume on your hearing aids. But turning it up too loud can force the sound to re-enter your hearing aids, which causes whistling. Turn down your hearing aid volume and avoid the point where the sound gets so loud that it creates feedback.

Broken tubing: For some hearing aids, the tube that connects to the earmold can harden and shrink. Sometimes the tubing then starts to pull the earmold, so that it doesn’t have the right fit anymore. That means it’s time to get a new tube.

Too much earwax: Your hearing aids help you hear because they deliver sounds to your ear canal. But if the ear canal is blocked by too much earwax, the sound can’t get through. So, it bounces back into your hearing aids – and they start to whistle.

If you’ve got excessive earwax, it can also block your ear canal and – in addition to causing problems with your hearing aids – give you earaches or damage your hearing.

Dislodged microphones: Hearing aid feedback can also be caused by loose or displaced microphones. We can help you resolve this issue at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah.

Spring Cleaning For Your Hearing Aids

Spring cleaning is more than an activity — it’s a mindset. Beyond the dusting, de-cobwebbing, and cleaning behind furniture, what else could benefit from a deep dive? Your hearing technology!

The holidays and long winter months can throw even the best of us off our routines. Use that spring-cleaning urge to your advantage and include your hearing technology in your yearly cleaning binge. Here are five ways to get started.

Replace the Wax Filter

Your wax filter can only work well for so long. Eventually it develops a buildup of wax and debris. Once that happens, sound quality starts to suffer, and it’s time to replace the filter. Every style of hearing device is a little different; check out the instructions for yours (and the tools that came with it), check for buildup, and, if needed, replace the filter.

Replace the Dome and Tubing on RIC Devices

Receiver-in-Canal devices not only have wax filters, they also have a dome and tube that can develop wax or debris buildup. As with the wax filter, once buildup develops in the dome or tube, sound quality suffers. Get the tools that came with your devices, check your instructions for how to clean the dome and tubing, and, if necessary, replace them.

Check Your Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier is a cleaning system for your hearing devices. The most basic models remove moisture and dry out wax; other models also disinfect and deodorize your devices.

If you have a dehumidifier that uses a desiccant — a liner, pebble, disc, or brick that absorbs moisture — it also has an expiration or best-by date, beyond which it no longer has sufficient drying power. Check the date, replace the desiccant if needed, and jot down the nearest expiration date somewhere you’re sure to see it.

If you aren’t using a dehumidifier, you should be, especially if you live in a particularly humid environment. Your hearing devices — which are basically small computers — sit in or on your ear all day collecting oils, moisture, and wax. Like all electronic devices, moisture can corrode or degrade the components in your hearing devices. Dehumidifiers remove all that harmful moisture while you sleep!

Update Your Routine

The best way to make hearing aid spring cleaning quick and easy is by keeping up a daily cleaning routine year-round.

When you take your devices out for the night, wipe them free of moisture, oils, and earwax with a soft, dry cloth — don’t use water or cleaning agents such as alcohol. Be sure not to deposit debris into, for example, the microphone ports. Then use the brush that came with your devices to remove debris from the ports and openings, taking care not to insert the bristles into the sound outlet — you could damage the microphone.

Once a month, clean the battery contacts with a dry cotton swab, taking care not to bend the battery contacts. Also check the wax filter to make sure it’s still in good shape. 

Clean & Check

No matter how diligent you are about cleaning your devices, the small ports and tubing will eventually trap wax and debris, leading to poor sound quality. At Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah, we want to help keep your devices working as well as possible for as long as possible.

Whether you are looking for new hearing aids or just need assistance with the ones you have, we are here to help.  For more information, you can give us a call at (270) 558-3996, stop by our office at 2008 Broadway, Paducah, KY 42001 or CLICK HERE to contact us.  At Purchase Ear Technology, you are more than a customer.  You are FAMILY!

Hearing Aids

5 Tips For New Hearing Aid Users

Unlike eyeglasses, which, when put on, provide immediate, positive results, hearing aids typically require a short transition period before benefits are fully realized. Most people need a month or two to get used to how the hearing aids sound and feel, and it can be frustrating at first as new sounds are heard or older sounds are crisper, stronger and seem, at first, abnormal. When you make the move from having hearing loss with no hearing aids to actually wearing them, you are essentially altering the way your ears interpret sounds. The longer a hearing loss is present, the longer the brain has adjusted to hearing sounds incorrectly. Thus, the transition period with new hearing aids is simply your brain re-learning how to understand and hear certain sounds.

It can also be difficult at first to get in the routine of wearing your hearing aids everyday. Your ears are not accustomed to having a foreign object on or in them, but independent research shows that once your ears become accustomed to the hearing aids, that hearing aid usage can have a positive effect on such things as earning power, relationships and physical health.

Tim Harmon at Purchase Ear Technology in Paducah recommends the following five tips to help yourself start hearing better with hearing aids:

1 – Wear them, even when you don’t want to — It’s important that you wear your hearing aids every day so you’ll be comfortable with them in all situations and every environment. Some environments are adjust to with hearing aids, but this just makes it all the more important for you to wear your hearing aids all the time. Allowing your brain and ears to learn how to work together again will only be possible if they have consistent exposure. Wearing your hearing aids infrequently will keep your ears and brain from connecting correctly again, make adjusting to sounds harder and will slow down your ability to focus and adjust to multiple voices and sounds.

2 – Open mind, positive outlook — You’ll get much more out of your hearing aids when you go into them with an open mind and a positive focus. Try to keep in mind all the quality-of-life benefits they provide when adjustments get hard and keep your mind open to the fact that nothing is perfect and adjustments might need to be made.

3 – Learn all you can about your hearing loss — The more you know about your limits, the easier it is to surpass them.

4 – Set realistic expectations — Nothing cures hearing loss, hoever hearing aids can truly help you regain much of what you’re currently missing. Be sure to set yourself realistic expectations such as hearing better in one-on-one conversations, understanding speech better in noisy environments and other reasonable goals.

5 – Be patient — Like riding a bike, hearing aids take time to master. But once you do, wearing your hearing will be second nature.

At-Home Troubleshooting Tips For Your Hearing Aids

Like any high-tech device, hearing aids may occasionally become fussy. Not to worry – most issues can be solved easily and at home. Below are some of the most common problems we see and the simple troubleshooting tips you can do to fix them from the safety of your home.

If you experience one of these issues,

  • Loss of sound
  • Weak or intermittent amplification
  • Internal noises or distorted/garbled sound

Then ask yourself these three questions to troubleshoot:

  1. Is my hearing aid on?

If you aren’t getting any sound from your hearing aid, ensure the hearing aid battery door is completely closed and the hearing aid is turned on. If you have a volume control, be sure the volume is not set on mute or on the minimum setting.

  1. Is there a problem with the battery?

The battery needs to sit in the hearing aid in a specific way for it to work (refer to your instruction manual for information on proper placement). Like other batteries, hearing aid batteries are polarized and have both “+” and “-” markings. The flat side of the hearing aid battery is the positive pole. Check for proper placement of the battery in your hearing aid. If the battery is upside down, your hearing aid won’t be able to draw power.

Next, make sure you aren’t working with a dead or weak battery. Remove a fresh battery from the package and remove the sticker/tab from the battery. We recommend you wait 3-5 minutes after removing the sticker before using the battery. This time allows the battery to completely charge before being ready for use.  Insert the new battery into the hearing aid. If you have a battery tester, you can use it to check the power level of the hearing aid battery as well.

  1. Is the hearing aid clogged?

Earwax, moisture, oils and other foreign materials can build up in the microphone(s), sound port, and tubing of the hearing aid, which can negatively impact its function.

  • Wipe hearing aid with a clean, dry cloth or tissue.
  • If your hearing professional provided you with a cleaning tool or brush, use it to clean debris from the hearing aid’s components.
  • Clean or replace wax guard/protection.
