Veterans who have been exposed to incredibly loud noises often come home suffering from hearing loss in one or both ears. While some hearing loss may be temporary, repeated exposure to loud noises or severely loud noises can result in permanent damage.

Dr. Cassandra Fynes and Mr. Roger Knighton will assess your individual needs and use state of the art technology to treat veteran hearing loss in Mesa, Arizona. Unlike other professionals in the area, Dr. Fynes and Mr. Knighton have the experience and technology necessary to expertly treat veterans with hearing loss. Fynes Audiology will evaluate your hearing needs and help you decide if hearing aids are right for you.
Depending on the severity of hearing loss, there are different options available for hearing aids. If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, there is a type of hearing aid called CIC, which stands for Completely-In-the-Canal. These hearing aids are incredibly small and fit deep inside the ear. The benefits of CIC units include making telephones easy to use and providing a noticeable decrease in wind noise and feedback. If your hearing loss is not mild and instead more moderately severe, an ITC, or In-The-Canal, hearing aid may be right for you. The ITC hearing aids are custom fit to your individual ear and are positioned at the end of the ear canal. The ITC hearing aids have more amplification power than the CIC hearing aids but are still quite discreet.
For severe or profound hearing loss, In-The-Ear (ITE) and Behind-The-Ear (BTE) hearing aids are available. ITE hearing aids are custom fit to your outer ear and are colored to match your skin tone to create a visually subtle unit. ITE hearing aids are also very comfortable to have in place, so you can dramatically improve your hearing with ease. BTE hearing aids are the largest aids available which means that they have the longest battery life and the most features. The BTE hearing aids accommodate the whole spectrum of hearing loss, from mild to profound. Many different styles and colors are available for BTEs so you can be as expressive as you like with your choice.
Choosing the right hearing aid means getting one that is appropriate for your level of hearing loss, your budget, and your lifestyle needs. Dr. Fynes and Mr. Knighton will help you decide which hearing aids will work best with your ear anatomy and which ones have the functionality and appearance that you desire. Fynes Audiology will present the appropriate options to you so you can make your own educated decision about what would work best for you.
