Hearing Services at Vineyard Audiology

Request Appointment

Vineyard Audiology offers a broad range of services because our goal is to help as many people as possible in as many ways as possible.

We want to be your one-stop hearing center right here on the island. If you have been having difficulty with hearing or understanding the sounds around you, let us evaluate your hearing and find a solution.

We carry many different hearing aid options depending on your specific hearing needs, and we can help with everything to do with hearing aids, from fitting them to maintaining them. But hearing health is about more than just hearing instruments — it’s also about protecting your hearing and finding lifestyle changes that will make it easier for you to understand and communicate with the people you love.

General Hearing Services

  • Hearing screenings: If you’re not sure whether or not you have hearing loss, a quick hearing screening can answer that question and let us know whether you need more in-depth testing.
  • Complete hearing evaluation: These more thorough tests give us insight into the specifics of your hearing loss, including its possible cause and what kinds of sounds you struggle to hear and/or understand.
  • Communication counseling: Hearing aids aren’t the only solution to live better with hearing loss. We’ll go over ways you and your family can improve your communication skills and how you can set yourself up to hear your best, with or without hearing aids.
  • Pediatric auditory processing testing: We can test whether your child has difficulty understanding the sounds they hear. If your child does have auditory processing disorder, there are ways to help.

Hearing Device Services

  • Hearing aid evaluations and fittings: Based on your hearing loss and your individual needs, we’ll make a hearing aid recommendation customized to you. We carry hearing devices from a number of major hearing aid manufacturers.
  • Hearing aid repairs, cleaning, and maintenance: We can complete some hearing aid repairs in-office. We’re also happy to help with ongoing cleaning and maintenance of your hearing aids if you aren’t comfortable changing or cleaning them yourself.
  • Custom molds for hearing protection: It’s important to protect your ears from loud noises, such as live music, construction, or loud workplace environments. We can take molds from your ears to make custom-fit earplugs.
  • In-ear monitors for musicians: We can also take molds to create custom-fit monitors for live music performance.
  • Assistive listening devices: Some devices, such as external microphones or TV connections, can help you hear better in specific situations. If you want one of these, we can help you select the right model.
  • Tinnitus assistance: While we do not specialize in treating tinnitus (ringing in the ears), we collaborate with an ear-nose-throat physician on the island to direct you if you need tinnitus retraining therapy.

Follow-Up Visits for Hearing Aids

All office visits are included in the cost of your hearing aids for the first year. We want patients to feel comfortable with their new hearing aids, and we encourage you to visit us and give us the chance to help make it right. In general, we recommend that patients come see us on a regular schedule so we can keep their hearing aids clean and effective.

  • Two weeks after you first get your hearing aids, we bring you back to make sure the sound is working for you, go over the cleaning process, and give you another opportunity to review how to take care of your hearing devices.
  • Every six months, we suggest you come in for a check-up so we can give your hearing aids a thorough cleaning. However, some patients prefer to have us clean their hearing aids once a month, and we welcome you to do so.
  • Once a year, we recommend getting your hearing re-tested. This lets us catch any changes to your hearing loss early.
