Have Your Hearing Evaluated
We encourage everyone to have their hearing screened at least once a year. That allows us to document where your hearing is, and then be able to monitor it over time. The incidence of hearing loss increases with age. About 1/3 of Americans between ages 65 and 74 and almost half of those over age 75 have hearing loss. On average most people wait for ten years before they do anything about their hearing problems - and this is not good!
Auditory deprivation is a damaging state that happens when the hearing nerve is under stimulated. The entire auditory system is compromised when hearing loss is not addressed. Auditory deprivation means that if a sound is not reaching the ear, then it is not reaching the brain, leading to atrophy.
Come In for a Hearing Test
Coming in for hearing testing means that you are taking care of your general health. We can make your hearing aids fit properly and ensure that you have adequate amplification in BOTH ears - both of these factors contribute to a reduction of auditory deprivation in the hearing impaired.
Take care of yourself: schedule a hearing evaluation at the first signs of hearing loss. Don't ignore hearing loss - most of the time it does not go away on its own. Hearing instuments can also mask tinnitus, which is ringing or other noises in the ears. 45 million Americans have tinnitus and it is typically related to hearing loss. There is no cure but we can help you with aids that will mask this issue.
Our testing will include a comprehensive audiologic evaluation. We do this thoroughly in order to determine the type and severity of hearing loss, so that we can then customize our recommendations for treatment.
