Restoring your confidence
If your hearing aids are not as helpful as you would like, a Cochlear implant may give you the speech clarity to regain your confidence in social situations.
How are cochlear implants different from hearing aids?
Hearing aids help many people by making the sounds they hear louder. As hearing loss progresses, sounds need to not only be made louder, they need to be made clearer.
Cochlear implants can help you hear sounds you no longer hear with your hearing aids, especially high-frequency sounds (such as grand children and birds singing), and help to give you speech clarity.
A cochlear implant may be for you if you answer YES to any of the below questions:

Hearing implant journeys
It’s made a big difference and it’s changed my life in big ways.
After switch on, the feeling was brilliant. Being able to hear things from all directions was a new sensation. Hearing the seatbelt slide over my shoulder was something that I had never heard before. It was the little, subtle things that made the biggest impact. There is a mentor program in place to assist people with their decisions by speaking to previous recipients.
I dropped a pen on my desk to my amazement I heard the pen hit the desk and roll-over! This may sound simple and maybe not even earth shaking but I heard it with the Cochlear! I am truly grateful for the help that you and everyone at Ear Science, Subiaco Gwelup and Joondalup have given to me.
“From 2014 – 2019 I really struggled with life and it was looking like I would need to retire. Not only was it affecting my work, but I couldn’t hear a word my grandchildren were saying to me. I had about 10% hearing in one ear and 46% in the other. The experience has been life-changing. I may now possibly be eligible for one in the left ear. I can hear my grandchildren now so it’s lovely.”
“Professor Atlas has been wonderful with such a commitment to giving the gift of hearing and creating the Ear Science Institute. He said my surgery went well. He and his team noting Ms Steffanie Cowan were very thorough in their assessments and gave me information that I have never bern given in nearly fourteen years.”
