Over The Counter Hearing Aids

OTC hearing aids

Similar to reading glasses you can purchase at CVS, over-the-counter hearing aids are tailored for individuals with a minimal to moderate permanent hearing loss. More affordable than prescribed hearing aids, the FDA announced that these devices can be sold by such manufacturers as Sony, Jabra and Lexie for persons over the age of 18. Best used for individuals with excellent speech understanding, they do not amplify sounds according to each individual’s specific hearing loss. Most styles will include a generic in the ear and behind the ear option that can be self-fitted and programmed by the individual wearer via the use of a smartphone.
