Hearing impairment is a condition that affects a number of people. Although one usually associates hearing loss with ageing, this is not always the case. Children and youths are also prone to hearing loss, if not at birth already.
Although there is no cure for hearing loss, submitting to a hearing test may help the user to recognise it in its earlier stages and grow accustomed to the use of hearing aids. Contact Beacon Healthcare on 21 576171.
Technology has evolved and today’s hearing aids come in different forms and sizes.
Some hearing aids are relatively invisible to the public. These are also available in Malta.

Your journey to better hearing starts here.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that hearing loss affects more than 250 million people worldwide. But how can you tell if you are one of them?
Look for these hearing loss signs:
- Difficulty understanding people, especially in crowded places like restaurants
- The need to have phrases repeated
- High volume on the TV or stereo
- Difficulty hearing on the phone
- Difficulty following group conversations
Conductive hearing losses can sometimes be helped through surgical or medical treatment. In most cases, however, hearing aids are the only means of helping hearing loss. This is especially true with sensorinueral hearing losses.
There is a wide variety of hearing aids available today in which sound reproduction can be tailored to the user’s own unique hearing loss and needs. It is important to note that, while hearing aids may not restore normal hearing they can significantly improve hearing ability in all situations – allowing for a fuller life.
