FDA Updates Consumer Information on OTC Hearing Aids

In a separate development, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also updated its information webpage for consumers on over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids.

Authorized by the FDA for sale in October 2022, OTC hearing aids are expected to help address a condition experienced by nearly 30 million adults in the U.S. who live with a mild to moderate degree of hearing loss. OTC hearing aids can be purchased in stores and online and no longer require a prescription or a visit to a licensed healthcare professional, provided that the purchaser is 18 years of age or older.

The FDA’s updated information page on OTC hearing aids provides detailed information on labeling requirements for hearing aid packaging, as well as detailed guidance on the factors that consumers should consider when purchasing them. It also provides a list of additional resources about OTC hearing aids available elsewhere on the FDA’s website.
