If you need help with your hearing, you know just how important it is to have access to high-quality hearing aids to enrich your everyday life. Sometimes, however, it might be tricky to know where to start: should you go the traditional route, with a prescription hearing aid from your doctor, or try an over-the-counter hearing aid instead? Enter Gardner Audiology. Gardner is Florida’s premier hearing healthcare provider that aims to improve the lives of people just like you through top-notch hearing health care practices. Patients trust Gardner’s medical expertise and decades of industry experience to ensure their needs will be met and their hearing prioritized.

Gardner audiologists know that you may feel inundated with ads and information online about which hearing aids to purchase. Let the experts at Gardner guide your journey with specialized content made with you in mind, accessible at gardneraudiology.com. The team at Gardner has made the process easy for you by creating an eight-part video series on the potential risks and benefits of purchasing over-the-counter hearing aids without consulting a doctor. This series can help equip you with the right information.

The video tutorials are timelier than ever, because as early as summer 2022, businesses may be able to sell over-the-counter hearing aids to customers without a doctor’s prescription. You need to know which type of hearing aid is the right fit for you, and it’s not worth taking a gamble when it comes to your healthcare. To find out if you would be well-suited to an over-the-counter hearing aid or if you’d benefit more from a doctor-prescribed hearing aid, launch the introductory video in Gardner’s investigative series at gardneraudiology.com/gardner-audiology-investigates-over-the-counter-hearing-aids/.

Topics discussed in the videos include how to avoid making hearing aid mistakes, exploring different over-the-counter hearing aid options, how face-to-face hearing aid testing can impact accuracy and more. Regardless of what hearing aid option is right for you, it is always a good idea to heed the advice of audiology professionals to ensure the best chance of success overall.
