Hearing aids are available in many different sizes and styles thanks to advancements in digital technology and miniaturization of the internal components. Many of today’s hearing aids are considered sleek, compact, and innovative – offering solutions to a wide range of hearing aid wearers. Your Audiologist will recommend the style of hearing aid that is most appropriate for you based on your hearing loss type and severity, ear anatomy, lifestyle and dexterity.

Hearing Aid Pricing
We believe in transparent pricing for our hearing loss treatment options and professional services. We want our patients to be active participants in their hearing healthcare. Hearing aids are a necessary part of many treatment plans. They can be very expensive, but they don’t need to be.
Traditionally, most hearing aid clinics use a model known as “bundled” pricing where the cost of the hearing aids includes the cost of the professional services, batteries, supplies, and 3 year warranties are bundled into the total price. This drives up the price of the hearing aids who ultimately forces many patients to forego treatment.
The Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta has “itemized” pricing, which means we itemize all services received. This allows the patient to pay for services as they receive them, making hearing aids less expensive for the patient. We believe this model allows more patients to access the quality hearing healthcare they deserve and save our patients money overall!
