Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the perception of sound, such as a persistent ringing, clicking or hissing in the ear, when no corresponding environmental sound exists.

A frustrating and sometimes debilitating issue affecting quality of life for millions of people worldwide, tinnitus is frequently the symptom of hearing loss, injury or an underlying health problem, though the cause may be unknown.

There is currently no cure for tinnitus; however, recent medical discoveries have led to treatment options which could provide some relief: 

Tinnitus Maskers

These electronic devices use sound to make tinnitus symptoms less noticeable. At Sound Oasis, we offer a broad range of white noise and tinnitus therapy sound machines, in addition to custom downloads for Bluetooth and mobile. 

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy

A treatment combination of counseling and the use of a tinnitus masker. Through tinnitus retraining therapy, an audiologist or otolaryngologist may be able to help you learn to manage your symptoms over time.

Tinnitus affects more than your hearing. It is not uncommon for people with tinnitus to suffer from related conditions such as insomnia, irritability and depression. Speaking to your doctor or therapist can be a helpful first step toward alleviating the impacts of tinnitus on your overall well-being.

Hearing Aids

Many people with tinnitus also have hearing loss. A hearing aid prescribed by your doctor can allow you to hear the sounds you want (e.g. talking, music), so you can focus on them rather than your tinnitus. 

Medication

Certain medicines may help ease tinnitus symptoms. Talk to your health care provider about treatment options and their side effects, as not all medications may be right for you.

How will hearing experts treat my tinnitus?

Although there is no cure for tinnitus, scientists and doctors have discovered several treatments that may provide relief.

Maskers

Maskers are electronic devices that use sound to make tinnitus less noticeable. Maskers do not make tinnitus go away, but they are very effective in making the ringing or roaring sound far less noticeable. Sound Oasis sound therapy systems are the finest tinnitus masking devices in the world. We offer a wide range of models to suit your needs.

Hearing Aids

Many people with tinnitus also have hearing loss. Wearing a hearing aid may allow you to hear the sounds you want to hear better (e.g. talking, music, etc.) rather than your tinnitus.

Medicine

Some medicines may ease tinnitus. If your doctor prescribes medicine to treat your tinnitus, he or she can tell you whether the medicine has any side effects.

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy

This treatment uses a combination of counseling and masking devices. Otolaryngologists and audiologists help you learn how to deal with your tinnitus better. You may also use masking devices to make your tinnitus less noticeable. After a while, some people learn how to avoid thinking about their tinnitus. It takes time for this treatment to work, but it can be very helpful.
