Hearing aids have proven a successful method for treating some tinnitus cases associated with hearing loss. Bilateral devices have proven particularly beneficial. Upon evaluating your symptoms and making a diagnosis, we may prescribe hearing aids to help ease tinnitus. By stimulating the reception of external noise through the amplification of a hearing device, the internal ringing and buzzing sounds associated with the condition are often decreased. This masking effect distracts the brain, ultimately helping provide the patient relief from symptoms.
In addition to recommending the best possible digital hearing device for you, we will also create a bespoke management plan to help treat your tinnitus. This guide, along with extensive counselling from our aftercare team, will help educate you on how best to cope with your symptoms on a day-to-day basis leading to a higher quality of life for you and your family.
Studies have demonstrated a significant improvement in the symptoms of tinnitus for those who used a Lyric hearing aid. The continuous nature of auditory stimulation provided by Lyric resulted in an immediate reduction of tinnitus, especially in quieter environments such as the bedroom and shower. Users instantly reported a better quality of life and a better sleeping pattern. Unlike digital hearing aids, Lyric can be worn 24/7. Audiology Medical Services was the first in Ireland to be trained in fitting Lyric, and it is our preferred solution for patients suffering from tinnitus.
