You might have come across the ads for “invisible hearing aids” especially if you have been researching hearing aids. If you saw them, then you are probably thinking, like many other people, these are the best inventions ever. The main reason why people with hearing problems want invisible hearing aids is that they don’t want to look old.

Chances are that you might be self-conscious about looking old before your time, but you still have to ask if those tiny hearing aids can really help you hear better. Ultimately, what you want is a hearing aid that you can hear clearly with and is comfortable to wear.

An “invisible” hearing aid could be a total waste of money depending on what type of hearing loss you have. If it doesn’t last for more than three years or if you just can’t hear clearly, then what good are they to you? You don’t want to invest lots of money into hearing aids and still end up asking “huh” when people are talking to you.

Nothing makes you look older than asking people to repeat often!

Invisible Hearing Aids, sometimes called contact lens for the ear, are only 16mm and are inserted by a hearing professional deep within the ear canal and from the outside, it is completely invisible.
