Maryland ENT Associates is happy to be able to offer Earlens to the patients in our practice! Earlens delivers more complete sound than any acoustic hearing device and a bandwidth associated with more natural sound quality and better hearing in noise because it vibrates the eardrum direclty. In Earlens, a processor worn behind the ear sends an audio signal through the ear tip to a custom lens that rests directly on the eardrum. When the lens receives the signal, it gently vibrates the eardrum to activate the ear’s natural hearing system.
Most complete sound: Earlens can provide meaningful amplification from 125 Hz to 10 kHz, while conventional hearing aids have trouble amplifying outside of 550 Hz to 5.5 kHz. Research has shown that those lower and higher frequencies impact sound quality and speech understanding, especially in noisy environments.
Premium care: Earlens is the only nonsurgical solution that combines the care of an ENT physician with an audiologist or hearing health professional. With Earlens, you will receive the highest level of hearing health care.
Advanced, custom technology: Each Earlens solution includes a custom ear tip and lens to optimize comfort and fit based on an ear impression taken by our physicians. After they are ready, our physician will place the lens in your ear, and our audiologist will program Earlens to your unique hearing needs.
If you’ve tried hearing devices but are still not getting the hearing you desire, Earlens may be the solution. While not everyone is a candidate for Earlens, our audiologist can help to determine what’s right for you.
