Hearing aids will never restore your hearing back to “normal,” but they can make things a lot easier to hear in many different listening situations. Modern hearing aids are very good at being able to adapt to your listening needs.
The important thing to remember when getting your first pair of hearing aids, is that unlike eyeglasses, which can produce instant results, it takes time to adjust to hearing aids. Hearing aids ask your brain to process sounds it hasn’t heard in a long time – or ever. Be patient and give yourself at least a month or two acclimatize. Try out your hearing aids in different situations and note where you hear well and where it might be more challenging. If certain listening environments never seem to improve over time it could be an indication that your hearing aids might need adjusting for those specific environments.
