Hearing Protection

Custom Hearing Protection can help protect your hearing from harmful noise is important to preserving your hearing clarity. The majority of people who experience a loss in hearing clarity have that loss because they have not effectively protected their ears—this is called "Noise Induced Hearing Loss". Everyday noise that can harm your ears includes:

  • power tools, chainsaws, woodworking equipment
  • lawnmowers
  • construction or industrial equipment
  • firearms
  • recreational noise - motorcycles, speedboats

To protect your ears, wear earplugs or earmuffs.

Custom Ear Plugs

For extra comfort and protection, we can provide you with custom earplugs that will conform specifically to your ear canals and can be customized to provide you with the right protection for specific noise environments. Hunters earplugs (shown above right) feature a valve that closes in the presence of impact noise. This allows shooters to hear clearly until the weapon is fired and still have some hearing protection from the gunfire. Other specialty custom ear plugs include those for pilots, motorcyclists, military personnel and more.

Custom Swim Molds

These custom molds help reduce the amount of water that enters into the outer ear canal. This type of mold may be recommended for patients with external or middle ear precautions or tubes in the ear drum. These molds are recommended for swimmers and surfers as well.

Dr. Hinkle did a very good job explaining his findings. He spent a lot of time explaining the devices and adapting them to my hearing deficiency. I am very satisfied with Dr. Hinkle’s' office services. Nice staff. Very nice medical help. I will remain his patient. Very satisfied.

In the past I advised my sister in law to see Dr. Hinkle. She did and was satisfied. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Hinkle's services."

- Dr. Raul Oviedo, M.D., Elkton, VA

I have been very happy their service, cooperation and cheerful attitude. I would highly recommend that a friend go to their office and let Dr. Hinkle and his staff talk them through ALL the steps they should follow. I know they will not be "high pressured" into doing something they don't need. I also would tell them: 'You will like these people.'"

— - Bill Blessing, Charlottesville, VA

I am now on my second set of hearing aids and very pleased with the hearing aids and the support of Dr. Hinkle and his staff. Hearing aids are an experience but well worth the investment if you have a problem. You would be pleased with the services of Dr. Hinkle and his staff."
