Since time immemorial, people have referred to the
eyes as “windows to the soul.” Yet, blind and deaf Helen Keller said
"Hearing is the deepest, most philosophical sense man possesses."
For centuries, sight impaired people have worn glasses
without being labeled “mentally defective.” Meanwhile, those with hearing
impairment have suffered enormous prejudice. Labeled as “old," "stupid,"
"mentally ill," or "selective listeners," many hearing impaired people live
in denial or refuse to wear hearing aids because they are afraid of being
For decades, quality eye glasses and contact lenses
have been purchased for around 100 dollars but until recently, hearing aids
were so expensive that only the wealthy could afford high quality corrective
Year upon year, eye glasses are fashionably designed
in various shapes and colors to enhance physically attractiveness.
Conversely, hearing aids are designed to be “discreet," and manufactured in
skin tones because they are deemed unsightly. Every day, thousands of people
submit their prescriptions for eye glasses and contacts lenses online.
Orders are then shipped directly to them within 24 hours. At the same time,
people seeking hearing correction call ahead for appointments, fight
traffic, and look for parking to obtain help.
So how can we level the playing field? First, we must

inferiority. Admittedly, those who endure uncorrected sight impairment or
hearing loss can be at a disadvantage, because they may be unable to
decipher everyday sensory signals. Fortunately, excellent solutions for the
hearing impaired are now readily available.
With the advent of technology, full-featured 100%
digital aids incorporating advanced noise canceling and sound amplification
computer chips can be produced inexpensively. There is no need to pay
thousands of dollars for comfortable, top-quality hearing aids to correct
moderate to moderate-severe hearing loss and reduce sound feedback inside
Hearing aids can also be fashionable and fun. Colorful
hearing aids incorporating gemstones can optimize individual attractiveness.
Such hearing aid solutions maximize intimacy at home, and empower
communication in the workplace. They signal pride, and are sported by those
who stay in the game and keep their edge. I have never met a woman who
doesn’t like diamonds, and I believe that most men feel successful when they
own the latest and the best.
After consulting with a physician to ensure a hearing
aid will benefit them, hearing impaired clients can select the size, model,
color, and stone they prefer, and input a current audiogram online. 100%
digital hearing aids are custom programmed to meet their prescriptive
correction requirements, and shipped within 24 hours. Clientele can take

Hearing loss acts as a “silent thief”, robbing the
individual of life’s pleasures. While hearing correction restores vitality
and self-esteem to the individual, spouses, family members, and coworkers
also reap life-changing benefits. Instead of shouting and continually
repeating themselves, they can relax, maximize the moment, and enjoy the
