    If you have glasses with wide or thick temples you may need to get thinner ones, but other than that you should have no problems. Remember that glasses fit inside hearing aids.

    I need hearing aids to help me. But also i need eyeglasses. Sometimes it is really boring because my eyeglasses are not harmonious with my hearing aids. Do you have any good idea to wear glasses and hearing aids at the same time? My first advice can be the eye type hearing aids which a set of aids installed at the end of the feet of glasses.However, although the price can be a little high, it can be very convenient. According to your description, I guess you must be using hearing aids behind your ears, in order to avoid the conflict between your glasses frame and your hearing aids, you can try to use a box type hearing aid or in ear ones.

    Actually you could choose the soft legs in the frames of the eyeglasses which could be matched with hearing aids at the same time. In addition, you could wear the contact lenses which could also let you have the right vision. You could have a try. Wearing contact lenses is more and more popular now.

    Well, yes, of course, you can have hearing aid and eyeglasses at the same time. Generally speaking, the "behind-the-ear" style of hearing aid can be troublesome for individuals who wear glasses. So for your situation, the "eyeglass" style of hearing system with the hearing aid built into the frame of your eyeglasses will be very suitable for you. And you should know that this type of hearing aid is available in the "behind-the-ear" and bone-conduction models of hearing aids. By the way, you need to protect your hearing aid from moisture, steam and humidity. Also, do not take your hearing instrument in the bath, shower or any swimming area.
