It’s simple: we want you to hear better. Keeping your hearing healthy allows you to stay engaged in your daily life. It's an essential part of life, one that not only has an impact on you, but can also affect those around you. When there is a change in your hearing or the hearing of a loved one, it is our job to partner with you to find the right solution.

Resources for People with Hearing Loss

We Start By Understanding Your Needs

The first step is a Communication Needs Assessment, when an audiologist will connect your listening needs with your hearing loss to offer a variety of options to help. This is an important step because communication needs can be as unique as your hearing, and discussing all options that are applicable to you will ensure you can make the best decision for what you want to do. Our audiologists and other clinical colleagues determine the right diagnosis and recommend the right rehabilitative and support services. A hearing test (audiogram) may be performed as part of this process to obtain a detailed evaluation of your hearing ability. Together, we can feel confident in the best personalized course of action.

Our Products and Services

When we provide your care, we will orient you to your hearing products, ensuring you can take advantage of all the features they provide. Our specialists will make sure they are physically comfortable, sometimes customizing based on your ear’s shape. Using state-of-the-art tools, we will optimize sounds. We will also provide communication counseling to help you achieve your hearing goals, and troubleshoot and repair any problems you may have. The devices we service include:

  • Hearing aids: medical electronic devices that can be worn either in or behind your ear. They can help improve how you hear and communicate.
  • Consumer hearing devices: devices that are intended to amplify sounds in the environment that can be purchased without a formal hearing evaluation.
  • Cochlear implants: surgical devices that can be considered when hearing aids are not able to make sounds loud and clear enough.
  • Bone conduction devices: surgical or non-surgical devices that can help improve hearing for people who have problems with their outer or middle ear(s) or no hearing in one ear.
  • Auditory brainstem implants: surgical devices for rare cases when the nerve is not healthy.

We also offer Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communication and Listening Services to help people understand hearing loss and how hearing changes impact communication and relationships. Mass Eye and Ear has a Pediatric Hearing Center that cares for children with a wide variety of conditions, including complex disorders of the ears, mild to profound hearing loss, and dizziness.
