Q&A: How do I comfortably wear eyeglasses and BTE hearing aids?

Question by DSu: How do I comfortably wear eyeglasses and BTE hearing aids?
I wear BTE hearing aids and eyeglasses. I think each of them are designed to fit on top of the ear, without any other device on the ear. As it is, my ears get tired from having both devices on them. And if I were to wear on-the-ear headphones, my ears would be even more tired. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, how do you deal with it?

I do not know how to answer this from personal experience, but my cousin wears hearing aids and eyeglasses. She chose a light wire frame when she wears her eyeglasses, but uses contact lenses most of the time. I am not sure if contacts are an option for you, but you may want to consider it. If you can wear hearing aids that are not behind the ear, that may be another option for you as well.

Good Luck!

    Go to your optician (person in the eye doctor’s office who adjusts glasses) while wearing your behind the ear (BTE) hearing aid and ask that the bow be adjusted to give you a better fit.
