July 08, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
The Clavenna Vision Institute, a renowned Birmingham LASIK practice, is pleased to announce the opening of its new hearing center. Long known as a leading Birmingham / Troy LASIK and cataract surgery provider, the Clavenna Vision Institute is committed to helping patients retain both their vision and hearing as they age.

Recognizing the importance of both vision and hearing for performing daily activities, the surgeons of the Clavenna Vision Institute now offer annual hearing tests along with annual vision exams to each of their patients over 50. Like vision loss, hearing loss is a common age-related occurrence, and one that often goes untreated. Diagnosing and correcting hearing loss can greatly improve the quality of life of patients beginning in their 50s.

To help meet the hearing correction needs of its patients, the Clavenna Vision Institute is staffed with a licensed audiologist and equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art hearing evaluation technology. In addition, the practice offers the full range of digital hearing aid devices to meet the custom needs of each patient.

The Clavenna Vision Institute's specifically chosen hearing aid manufacturer has more than 70 years of experience and maintains a network of 1,500 service locations throughout the nation for patients' convenience. In addition, each hearing aid comes with a 30-day guarantee to help ensure that each patient gets the device that best meets his or her hearing correction needs.

The doctors of the Clavenna Vision Institute are proud to add hearing exams and aids to their menu of services, thereby helping their patients retain both their hearing and their vision for a better overall quality of life.
