How Do I Find a Hearing Aid Near Me?
Getting a hearing aid used to be a massive hassle. First you may have had to see your family doctor, then get a referral to an otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat speciality), and finally a referral for an audiologist consultation—that's three separate appointments, three separate commutes, three separate copays! You might be waiting weeks or months for an appointment and the last thing you want to do is travel, sometimes substantial distances to all of those offices.
No one would blame you for feeling overwhelmed and thinking, for heaven's sake, "Where can I find hearing aids near me?" Luckily, the answer might be closer than you think. Hearing aids are now available online, and can be shipped directly to your home from Lively—they can be purchased wherever you are—couch, kitchen table, even on vacation. I no longer have to wonder where to find hearing aids—I was so pleased to learn that they're wherever I'd like them shipped!
Virtual audiologist appointments
While it can be necessary to see a doctor in-person before purchasing hearing aids if there is chance your hearing loss is caused by infection, injury or deformity, ear wax in the ear canal, or rarely, tumors, when it comes to seeing an audiologist, you can get high-quality care remotely using any phone, tablet or computer.
Audiologists are health professionals with postgraduate education in assessing, diagnosing and treating hearing disorders. They can support you with custom amplification needs in your hearing aids, understanding how your individual brain processes sound, deals with noise or ringing in your ears (tinnitus), sensitivity to particular sounds (hyperacusis and misophonia), and issues with balance.
For those who haven't used a hearing aid before, you may want to rule out other problems and keep your family doctor informed about changes in your health, including changes in hearing.
With Lively's mobile app, which is included with their hearing aids bundle, clients also have access to on-demand video appointments. You can also send a message to an audiologist with questions and get real-time support. They'll fine tune your hearing aids to suit your unique needs, make sure the hearing aids are fitting correctly and comfortably, explain the Lively app setting and device controls, and teach you how to take care of your hearing aids (battery changing, cleaning, and more).
How to purchase hearing aids online
Hearing aids can be purchased on Lively's website—simply pick from an assortment of colors, add the bundle to your cart, create an account, and checkout. You'll enjoy huge savings with Lively hearing aids, which cost $1,850 for a pair—compared to between $5,000-$8,000 for other top brands—and you can choose a financing plan as low as $78/month. You can also choose between six colors: gray, beige, light blonde, medium blonde, dark brown, black, and white. Choose a shade that matches your hair color and your hearing aid will blend in even more discreetly behind your ear.

For some of us, making an online purchase of a hearing aid will be a new experience, but these product policies ensure that you'll be happy with your hearing aids for years to come.
It's also important to do your research and ask others who have hearing loss and found success with their hearing aids for recommendations.
