Can I get hearing aids for my mother in Nigeria?

Is there the possibility to get hearing aids for my mother who lives in Nigeria? She is 75 this year. She has undergone tests here in Abuja and had a trial of bilateral hearing aids. I have lived in the UK, and would prefer to buy from Specsavers than from any random online store.

Answer: 

Many thanks for your question. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to supply hearing aids for your mother in Nigeria. The process of fitting hearing aids is very scientific and requires a detailed assessment and fitting protocol. The very subjective nature of hearing makes it impossible to perform 'long distance' services and I would urge you to be very cautious if attempting to purchase hearing aids off the internet.
