Am I candidate for CI


Recommended Posts

I am 67 years I had Tinnitus from aloud sound at age 18 and gradually lost my hearing( sensorineural hearing loss) hearing diagram shows sharp drop in high frequency at 1000 Hz down to 70-90-100 . I can communicate with someone if no background noise but when I am with friends in crowded place or with any background noise I am completely deaf and can't understand a word they say.

This link may give you an idea if you are eligible for an EAS system (uses CI input for mid to high frequencies).  If you go on the Med-El website for the US and click on clinic finder, you can select EAS and your state to find a center that can evaluate you for candidacy.  Wishing you the best!
