Helping You Find Your Perfect Prescription Hearing Aids
Nobody looks forward to the day they get to wear prescription hearing aids, but with over 48 million Americans suffering from some form of hearing loss (that’s 1 in 10 people), hearing aids are a critical part of caring for your hearing health.
That’s why we work with you to find the perfect hearing technology for you based on your unique circumstances, level of hearing loss, and budget.
You can explore a range of technology, discuss your options with experienced audiologists, and make the right decision in a pressure-free environment.
But before you choose your hearing aids, the first step is to schedule your hearing evaluation with our leading team of audiologists.
“I am 100 years old and would be lost without my hearing aids. Thank Heaven for Dr. Martinez and his staff. They understand my concerns and answer my questions, always courteous, always kind, never in a hurry or rushed. I found them to be friendly, caring professionals, and I highly recommend them to anyone facing hearing loss.”
The Different Styles of Prescription Hearing Aids
Invisible In The Canal (IIC)
IIC instruments are the smallest custom style on the market today. They rest invisibly in or just beyond the second bend of the ear canal. IIC devices are specifically designed for those with mild to moderate hearing losses in mind.
Completely In The Canal (CIC)
CIC instruments are custom styled and fit deeply and completely inside the ear canal. They are suitable for mild to moderate hearing losses. As they’re nearly invisible when worn, many people find them cosmetically appealing.
In The Canal (ITC)
ITC instruments are placed in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl and they are comfortable and easy to use. Due to their larger size, they have longer battery life and are capable of additional features, such as directional microphones – quite useful for better understanding in loud environments –and volume controls. They are a good fit for mild to moderate hearing losses.
Full Shell Or In The Ear (ITE)
Full shell models are placed flush within the outer ear bowl. Their larger size means a maximum number of controls and features including directional microphones, which require space on the outer portion of the device. They use a larger battery than smaller hearing aids and can manage a larger receiver with enough power for even some severe hearing losses. Because of their range of options, they’re highly recommended for mild to severe hearing losses.
Receiver In-Ear (RIC)
The RIC models are like mini BTEs and look quite similar to them when worn. Their speaker is incorporated in the ear tip, instead of in the main unit of the device. RICs are good for mild to severe hearing losses.
BTE With Earmold
BTEs with earmolds suit wearers with mild to profound hearing losses. They come in a longer shape, which follows the contour behind the outer ear. They have a variety of features, including a program button and volume control. The earmold and style, as well as the wearer’s hairstyle, will determine how they will look on each individual.
Over The Counter (OTC)
These pioneering hearing-enhancing earbuds have been specifically engineered with advanced medical-grade technology, to help you focus on what you want to listen to, without just turning up the volume.
The innovative design uses 4 dedicated microphones to reduce background noise and improve speech clarity, so whether you’re chatting with your partner in a busy café or catching up with friends over dinner, the sounds that matter will be crystal-clear.

Your first step toward regaining the rich, rewarding, and independent lifestyle you are missing due to a hearing loss is to schedule a comprehensive hearing assessment.
