Following the presentation, Ben will be conducting free video otoscopic inspections. You will be able to see the inside of your ear on a video screen to ensure you have no blockage. Our video ear inspection can be helpful in understanding why you may be experiencing problems such as:

  • Having to turn the television up in order to understand or use closed captioning
  • Hearing but not understanding
  • Difficulty understanding in crowds such as restaurants
  • Frequently asking people to repeat themselves
  • People sounding like they are mumbling on the phone

No cost complimentary hearing evaluations will be offered at any of the Miracle Ear ten locations in West Michigan for anyone in attendance. In the case treatment is prescribed and you choose to take the step toward better hearing, you will be given a free battery charger or TV Streamer with the purchase of a compatible hearing aid.
