The Earlens® Contact Hearing Solution
We are proud to be a provider of Earlens, the world’s first and only hearing solution to directly vibrate the eardrum. Earlens delivers more complete sound than any acoustic hearing aid, and a bandwidth that is associated with more natural sound quality and better hearing in noise. In Earlens, a Processor worn behind the ear sends an audio signal through the Ear Tip to a custom Lens that rests directly on the eardrum. When the eardrum receives the signal, it gently vibrates the eardrum to activate the ear’s natural hearing system
Unlike traditional hearing aids that just make sounds louder through a speaker, Earlens offers the world’s only nonsurgical lens to gently vibrate the eardrum.

Hear What You've Been Missing
In Earlens, a Processor worn behind the ear sends an audio signal through the Ear Tip to a custom lens that rests directly on the eardrum. When the eardrum receives the signal, it gently vibrates the eardrum to activate the ear’s natural hearing system.
Most complete sound: Earlens can provide meaningful amplification from 125 Hz all the way to 10 kHz, while conventional hearing aids have trouble amplifying outside of 550 Hz to 5.5 kHz. But research has shown that those lower and higher frequencies impact sound quality and speech understanding, especially in noisy environments.
Premium care: Earlens is the only nonsurgical solution that combines the care of an ENT physician and audiologist or hearing health professional. With Earlens, you will receive the highest level of hearing healthcare.
Advanced, custom technology: Each Earlens solution includes a custom Ear Tip and Lens to optimize comfort and fit based on an ear impression taken by your physician. After they are ready, your physician will place the Lens in your ear, and your audiologist will program Earlens to your unique hearing needs.
Trying Earlens is Easy
First, you will meet with an audiologist and ENT doctor to determine whether you are an Earlens candidate. Then, the ENT doctor will take an impression of your ear that will be used to build the lens and ear tips, which takes about two weeks. At your next appointment, the ENT doctor will place the lens into your ears and your audiologist will adjust the settings to optimize your hearing. As you adapt to Earlens, you will continue to have the full support of our practice as well as the Earlens Concierge team. To learn more, call us and ask to schedule an Earlens consultation.
