Does hearing loss leave you, or someone you love, feeling isolated and alone? The Ear Science Implant Clinic team is here to change that.
Currently less than 10% of those that need a cochlear implant, actually get one. Here at the Lions Hearing Clinics and Ear Science Implant Clinic, we are determined to change that. There are some questions you can ask, to determine whether a cochlear implant may be right for you or someone to care about.
To find out if you or someone you care about maybe a cochlear implant candidate, or simply just to have a hearing test, call us on 1300 847 395 to book your appointment today.
Unlike hearing aids, cochlear implants don’t amplify sounds but instead mimic and replace the hearing function of the inner ear through electronic stimulation. The system has two parts – an external sound processor and the actual cochlear implant. Incoming sounds are processed into electrical signals and then transmitted directly to the hearing nerve, bypassing the damaged parts of the inner ear.
