How to change the Oticon hearing aid dome
Changing the dome will help keep ear wax from getting into the filter. It is less likely the hearing aid will block with wax if this is done.
However, cleaning the dome is something that can also be done if it is not practical to change the dome so often. This is usually best done at night when you take the hearing aids out. It can prolong the life of your hearing aid and help keep it operating at its optimum. Take a baby wipe or alcohol wipe and gently wipe any wax that it sitting on the dome away. Do not use alcohol wipes on the hearing aid shell.
