The Tiniest Hearing Aid A new hearing aid that sits inside the ear has been dubbed the contact lens for your ear because it is invisible.

It works around the clock, so there’s no daily hassle of putting it on and taking it off. It can stay in position for up to four months at a time. Wear it while sleeping, showering, swimming and wearing earphones. You need to return to your specialist to have a new Lyric inserted as this is done through a microscope.
