What are the differences between over-the-counter and prescription hearing aids?
Over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids are hearing devices that are available for purchase without a prescription. They are generally lower in cost and more accessible than prescription hearing aids, which require a medical evaluation and fitting by a licensed hearing healthcare professional. OTC hearing aids are often smaller in size and have limited customization options compared to prescription hearing aids.
Prescription hearing aids are tailored to the specific hearing needs of the individual and are typically more expensive than OTC hearing aids.
Mimitakara OTC hearing aids are suitable for all types of hearing loss (moderate to severe). We also offer self-fitting option OTC hearing aids that allow you to customize your OTC hearing aids to your specific need.
