There are a few options to consider for this scenario:

1) CROS (if the better ear is normal) or BiCROS (if the better ear has a hearing loss as well)

2) Osseointegrated hearing aid, such as the Cochlear Baha or Oticon Ponto (this may not be possible if the better ear has a significant loss, or if the patient is not a surgical candidate)

3) Unilateral cochlear implant (may not be covered by insurance, or the patient may not be a candidate for surgery or the implant itself)

You can visit your hearing healthcare professional to discuss the options and determine which is the best for you!
