Like millions of Canadians, you might have noticed that your hearing is not quite what it used to be. While you might have been able to hear a pin drop from across the room a few years ago, today you might be struggling to hear your family speak in crowded settings. Or maybe the constant ringing of tinnitus is keeping you up at night. Whatever your hearing health challenges, NexGen hearing is here to help.
Our qualified RHIP is here to administer hearing tests and determine if you need a hearing aid. If you do require a hearing aid, they will help you select the right hearing aid for your level of hearing loss and hearing goals and fine tune it to you. Our team at the Ucluelet NexGen Hearing clinic located on Peninsula Road is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients. Reach out to us to book your free hearing test today, and get back to hearing all of the amazing sounds of our city!

Frequently Asked Questions
The act of not wearing a hearing aid in itself will not make your hearing get worse. What can make your hearing get worse is not wearing a hearing aid and needing to increase the volume on things like televisions, radios, and headphones, or needing people you are talking with to talk louder. We recommend you wear your hearing aid as directed by your doctor and audiologist. However, if you are not wearing your hearing device, be sure not to overdo it with turning up the volume.
We do perform cerumen management at a small number of our NexGen Hearing clinics, most clinics prefer to provide this service to existing clients only. If you are a new client call ahead to find out which clinic offers cerumen management please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.
If you have any history of outer ear pathology or ear infections, we recommend you see your family doctor.
If your hearing aid is making a whistling noise, then you are hearing feedback in your device. Sound that was supposed to go into your ear canal has escaped the ear instead and been picked up by the hearing instrument’s microphone. The sound then becomes reamplified and put out of the speaker.
This can happen when the hearing aid does not fit properly. If you are experiencing a whistling noise in your hearing device, come see us at our clinic so we can have your hearing aid refitted.
The life of a hearing aid’s battery is impacted by many factors such as the hearing aid model, battery brand, battery technology, and how the device is used. The model of the hearing aid is integral in determining the life of the battery. Some hearing aids are better than others in terms of battery consumption while others offer features that will more quickly drain a battery. Batteries come in four common sizes (10, 312, 13, 675). Based on a 16 hour day of wear, the average lifespan for a standard battery is listed below:
Size 10: 3 – 7 days
Size 312: 3 – 10 days
Size 13: 6 – 14 days
Size 675: 9 – 20 days
If you prefer, rechargeable hearing aid batteries are also available for certain models of hearing aids that greatly improve the ease of replacing your batteries. Consult with your local NexGen Hearing aid practitioner for additional details.
We do perform tinnitus assessments at some of our NexGen Hearing clinics. To find out which clinic you can book a tinnitus assessment appointment please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.
