Like many people who need hearing aids, Peter Sprague didn’t rush out to get a pair once his hearing started to suffer.
“It’s a billboard that says you’re old — with all the concomitant things that go with being old,” he said.
When Sprague was ready to use aids, instead of getting morose, he wanted to make a change.
Sprague, 78, founded HearGlass in 2014. His technology incorporates hearing amplification devices into glasses frames.
