While the last Indian census reported that around 1.3 million people were suffering with ‘hearing impairment’, the number cited by India’s National Association of the Deaf stands quite contrasting at 18 million people as deaf. Worsening the condition further is the social stigma. “Ignoring hearing loss over time can eventually lead to a cognitive decline, frustration and even depression in addition to illness like Dementia and Alzimer’s, which can result in people withdrawing and isolating themselves,” explains Vikram Saha, Director, C.C. Saha Ltd. He also adds that testing early will help one prevent further deterioration to the ears, thereby enjoying a better quality of life.

Hence, through C.C. Saha a reputed and leading chain of hearing clinics in eastern India, Vikram not just provides the best audiological solutions but even creates awareness about the issue among people. “We have facilities for basic and advanced audiological testing, counselling, trial fitting and dispensing of digital hearing aids and most importantly, providing superior after sales service,” he adds. Having its own mold manufacturing laboratory empowers the clinic to cater to outstation patients, apart from having an inhouse service and repairs help desk all under one roof. “We therefore position ourselves as a complete hearing solutions provider,” explains Vikram. The rich legacy of 86 years has earned the clinic a trusted name in hearing solutions. This has created a deep sense of trust among patients as well.

One-Stop Solution Provider
India is still struggling to create a strong plinth for itself in the hearing space. Despite a marginal increase in the awareness levels, the penetration level in the country is hardly one-two percent as against 10-15 percent globally. “Hearing loss occurs so gradually that one does not often realize it for years. In fact it’s the people around who are the first to notice it. Even when one is aware of the benefits of hearing aids, there tends to be a deferment tendency when it comes to purchase. In fact, it is estimated that people with hearing loss wait an average of seven years before seeking help,” explains Vikram.
C.C. Saha follows a three-step process to serve any patient. The first being the audiometry test conducted by qualified RCI certified audiologists. Based on this report which is detailed and comprehensive, the patient is counselled following which the hearing aid can be selected, programmed and fitted correctly. The clinic even has provision to help patients get their hearing aid serviced or reprogrammed. “Patients need to compulsorily get an audiometry done before our audiologists can counsel and prescribe the best hearing aid through a trial and fitting process based on multiple factors,” says Vikram.

With constant technology changes the hearing aids have become highly sophisticated,technologically superior and state-of-the-art. Hence C.C. Saha provides custom made technologically savvy hearing aids which are cosmetically more appealing thereby making them undetectable and practically invisible. “It is estimated that around 10 percent of the current hearing aid users are kids where the hearing loss is congenital. Hence, we also have hearing aids specially designed for the paediatric segment,” asserts Vikram. The clinic also offers rechargeable hearing aids thus providing freedom to users from disposable batteries.
