Can I go to bed wearing my hearing aids?

I was wondering if it is safe to sleep whilst wearing your hearing aids. I work really long hours and sometimes I come home and fall asleep on the couch watching TV, without taking my hearing aids out.

Am I harming my ears? Am I damaging the hearing aids themselves? What are the risks of going to bed still wearing your hearing aids?

Answer

Please note that it isn’t life-threatening to fall asleep still wearing your hearing aids however, we strongly recommend against it. You risk rolling over and lying on your side which causes the device to make a whistling sound. This can be very loud and it can damage your hearing even further.

Have you considered buying a special hearing aid that can be worn 24/7? The Phonak Lyric is quite expensive and usually costs around £130 per ear, per month but it is highly advocated if you regularly forget to take your hearing aids out before going to bed.
