Anyone exposed to high levels of noise should protect his or her hearing through the use of earplugs or earmuffs. These are available from a number of sources, including your local pharmacy or hardware store.
Custom made earplugs are more comfortable and more effective than over-the-counter versions.
For swimmers, custom swim molds prevent water from entering the ear canal. Swim molds are useful for anyone with middle ear tubes or with “swimmer’s ears.”
Please call our office if you would like more information on custom made ear protectors.
