Hearing Loss

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.

  1. Even musicians, who literally create music for our ears, are at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Some now wear special earplugs to protect their ears when they perform. The earplugs allow them to hear music without harming their ears’ inner workings.
