Ear care: Hear Again

Ask anyone suffering from a hearing impairment how it affects their day-to-day life and invariably the answer will be difficulty understanding conversation in a group situation and feelings of isolation.

To be in a room packed with people but be cut off from the conversations going on around you can be frustrating and upsetting. Not hearing properly can make for a lonely life.

Hearing loss develops slowly and it sometimes takes family members to point it out. Admitting to a hearing loss can be difficult and helping someone with a hearing loss can also be hard.

Hear Again is one of the highest rated hearing clinics in Christchurch. It is a fully independent hearing provider that gives honest and unbiased advice. There can be many underlying reasons as to why an individual suffers hearing loss; one common cause is an excess of ear wax, resulting in blocked ears. With the aid of a micro-suction machine, clinicians can gently and painlessly vacuum away ear wax and debris.

Another common ear problem is tinnitus, which is a sensation of sound which is not present in the external environment. Tinnitus can be a ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling, throbbing, booming, clicking, roaring or cicada-like noise. It can be a single sound or many different sounds and can develop gradually or suddenly.

Approximately 20% of the population experience persistent tinnitus and 4% of the population have tinnitus that severely impacts quality of life. Often tinnitus exists as a symptom of hearing loss. Hear Again provide free hearing checks to find out if there are any hearing problems which could be causing this. The best solution for most hearing losses is to be fitted with appropriately prescribed hearing aids. The clinicians will chat through all of your options in this regard. With access to the highest quality hearing devices and accessories from the world’s leading manufacturers, clients are assured that all of their hearing wants and needs are catered for.

The team at Hear Again pride themselves on taking the time to get to know their clients. They provide free, no obligation demonstrations of hearing aids to show the benefits of wearing hearing aids and how life and lifestyles can be greatly improved. Hearing aids start from as little as $495 (assuming a government subsidy can be claimed for a hearing aid on behalf of the client).

Depending on your work history, you may be eligible for other funding, which can even provide hearing aids at no cost to you.

Open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, Hear Again is located at Hornby Mall (between Japan Mart and BNZ). Call 03 974 1658, or book an appointment online. For information, email info@hearagain.co.nz.
