At Horizon, an audiologist tests your hearing, then sits with you for a comfortable conversation about your results. Will a hearing aid help you? If so, we’ll program a digital aid just for you. But what’s the best style aid for you? Do you attend lectures frequently? Travel a lot? The life you lead is more important than your age in choosing a hearing aid.
A hearing device not only helps you hear, it also helps your brain remember the sounds you cannot hear without your hearing device. In fact, 83% of hearing aid users reported improved quality of life through better hearing! During your first year, we see you quarterly to monitor your hearing aid and check the improvement in your hearing.

Horizon Audiology is now a proud certified Lyric provider and the only Lyric provider in Mercer county! Lyric by Phonak is the first and only 100% invisible extended wear hearing solution. Once placed, it can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is even designed to be worn during daily activities (like showering and sleeping).
Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal so that it provides natural sound quality while staying out of sight.
