Customized ear plugs can be made specifically for noise, sleeping and swimming.
Hearing protection: Noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss today. Noise damage is irreparable but it is preventable by wearing hearing protection when exposed to decibel levels greater than 80dB. Noise damage is not only caused by high decibel (volume) sounds but also by the amount of time an individual is exposed to noise, for example someone who listens to their iPod all day could cause as much damage to their hearing as loud industrial equipment.
Sleep plugs: Custom made sleep plugs are soft and comfortable allowing you to have a good night's rest without being bothered by sounds around you.
Swim plugs: Swim plugs are a necessity for any children with grommets. Grommets create a hole in the ear drum which allows the water to seep into parts of the ear where it shouldn't be, aggravating middle ear infections.
