Why do some people avoid or put off getting a hearing insturment?

There are many reasons why people with hearing loss put off getting hearing aids. The major reason is that many are not aware of the excellent benefits that modern hearing instuments provide. Some base their decision on a bad experience that they or their friends may have had with their hearing aids in the past. Others may think that their hearing loss is too mild to need help or too severe to get any help. The fact is that modern hearing instruments are very different from older hearing aids and can be helpful to the majority of people with hearing loss. Today's new "digital" hearing instruments are better than ever and provide remarkably natural results.
