Audiologists specialize in a multitude of work environments such as members of cochlear implant teams, managing hearing conservation programs, evaluating for and prescribing hearing aids and other hearing assistive devices, and perform hearing-related surgical monitoring. In addition, audiologists also screen the hearing of newborns, teach listening skills and strategies, assess individuals with central auditory processing disorders, and assess and treat individuals who suffer with tinnitus (ear noises). Audiologists work in clinical settings such as a hospital, private practice or other medical facility; many are professors at universities and colleges; there are researchers and some who work within the hearing and balance manufacturing industries.
Hearing aids are medical devices regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and must be recommended and prescribed by licensed professionals. This standard is in place to protect the individual with hearing loss as not all individuals are candidates for amplification. Additionally, an improperly fit hearing aid or hearing aid sold online without a face-to-face evaluation with an audiologist can potentially cause various problems. Without a face-to-face evaluation, the consumer will not have an otoscopic evaluation (have the audiologist look into the ear canal) and medical problems such as ear drainage or ear blockages which can cause hearing loss will not be identified. Additionally, hearing aids that are not adjusted to the individual needs of the patient have the potential for increasing the hearing loss if the devices are not set appropriately. Lastly, audiologists can tailor a comprehensive treatment plan for each individual patient so as to ensure maximum performance from any device that may be prescribed.
