Our five senses define how we experience the world around us, and when any one sense is compromised, it can make daily life challenging and set off a chain reaction of other problems. When issues occur with eyesight or hearing, navigating basic communications can become overwhelming and difficult, leading to frustration and isolation. Advancements in eye care and hearing and balance offer help to those with ocular or inner-ear issues, everything from cataracts and dry eyes to hearing loss and tinnitus. Loss in eyesight or hearing can be signs of more serious problems, so evaluations are an important step in finding solutions and preventing other complications. Resources are available locally from specialists in eye care and hearing—if you are experiencing issues with your senses, consider an appointment with an expert today.

Hearing & Balance


When you suffer from a persistent hearing and balance disorder, you can become isolated. If you can’t hear, you can’t engage in conversation. If you’re afraid of falling, you tend to stay home. The CNC Hearing and Balance Center, led by Neurotologist Moises Arriaga, can help you get your life back.

The CNC medical staff is uniquely qualified to provide a full hearing health evaluation and solutions that can make a real difference. CNC offers a wide array of treatment options from assistive devices to microsurgical hearing restoration, surgically implantable hearing devices, digital hearing device fittings and follow-up service, CochlearTM implants, hearing tests, and tinnitus evaluation and treatment.

Hearing loss can be an indication of a more serious condition and can even contribute to dementia and risk of falling. Take care of yourself or someone you love today. The CNC Hearing and Balance Center has offices in Marrero and Uptown New Orleans. Call 504-934-8320 for an appointment or visit
