For Sydney mother Fiona Mann, 38, the most devastating consequence of her hearing loss was her inability to hear her young children at night – naturally, a huge concern for any parent. Traditional hearing aids must be removed before the wearer goes to sleep, meaning Fiona was unable to hear anything, less her children after she retired to bed. “My husband often travels with work and I’m alone with my kids overnight. Taking out my aids before I went to sleep was a worry, especially if a smoke alarm or baby monitor was to go unheard,” says Fiona.

Suffering from hereditary hearing loss for most of her life, Fiona had all but given up finding a hearing aid that provided her with quality, natural hearing – day AND night! That was up until recently, when Lyric landed on Aussie shores – the world’s first ‘invisible’, extended-wear hearing aid.

Hailed ‘the contact lens for your ear’, Lyric, which measures 16mm, is inserted deep inside the ear canal by a hearing health professional and is completely invisible from the outside. Lyric remains in the ear 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be worn for up to four months at a time, allowing users to shower, swim , talk on the phone and, crucially for Fiona and other parents, Lyric users can sleep whilst wearing their hearing aids.
