Completely-In-the-Canal (CIC) Hearing Instruments

This is the smallest type of hearing aid available and it is almost invisible in the ear. All the components are housed in a small case that fits far into the ear canal. This takes advantage of the ear's own anatomical design and ability to collect sound naturally.

CICs are custom-made for each ear; however, these hearing aids are restricted to people with ear canals large enough to accommodate the insertion depth of the instrument into the ear. Also, the CIC style uses a very small battery that requires good manual dexterity. This type of hearing aid is not suitable for people with severe hearing losses.

In-the-Canal hearing instruments (ITCs)

A little bigger than the CIC, the ITC hearing aids also fit far into the ear canal. Canal hearing aids use a slightly larger battery than the CIC style. This style is used for mild to moderate hearing losses.

In-the-Ear Hearing Instruments (ITEs)

These hearing aids can be used for a wider range of hearing losses. Due to their larger size, ITEs can accommodate larger sound amplifiers and more features such as a telephone switch. They are also easier to handle for many people.

Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE)/Receiver in the Canal (RIC)

These hearing aids tend to be smaller, lighter in weight and more inconspicuous than the traditional BTE hearing aid. The body of the hearing aid rests on top of and slightly behind the ear, but the receiver (speaker) portion of the device is placed inside the ear canal. This style provides two primary benefits.

  • 1. It makes the body of the device much smaller and lighter.
  • 2. The sound quality at the eardrum is a clearer representation of the desired sound.

Consequently, the RITE/RIC hearing aid has become the most popular hearing aid on the market today.

Behind-the-Ear Hearing Instruments (BTEs)

In BTE hearing aids, the electronics are housed in a case that fits behind the ear. Tubing and a custom-made earmold direct the sound to the ear canal. Due to its robust design, this style is especially recommended for children. BTE hearing aids can provide more amplification than smaller devices due to the stronger amplifier and larger battery. This style is available in several colors to match people's hair and skin tone, or in bright, fun colors for children.

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center was opened in 1986 with the express purpose of rendering high quality, state of the art eye surgery to patients of all ages, especially those with cataracts, glaucoma, or cornea disease. The Center is designed specifically with the needs of the patient in mind. The entire process from initial examination to final outcome is conducted in a pleasant comfortable environment.

After a patient decides to have surgery, he or she is assigned his or her own Surgical Counselor who is available to answer questions and provide assistance. These individuals are specially trained to assist the patient throughout the entire surgical experience, including follow up care for as long as necessary. Patients are encouraged to contact their counselor for any questions, no matter how simple or complex.
