Common Questions about Hearing Aids
Hearing loss is one of the most common health problems in the United States. Not only is it a health issue, but it can impact your lifestyle and the quality of your relationships. An estimated 48 million Americans struggle with some form of hearing loss. Studies show that age, genetics, or illness may play a part in hearing loss. Modern life developments have also contributed to hearing loss including certain medications and loud consistent noise. If you suffer from hearing loss, hearing aids offer a valuable solution to helping you hear better.
What are the symptoms of hearing loss?
Hearing loss generally occurs gradually. It can be so gradual that you may not notice it until it has advanced beyond mild hearing loss. You may have hearing loss if: you feel like people are mumbling, you think you need a better phone, you feel like your spouse needs to speak louder all of the time, you often misunderstand what others say, you get told the TV is too loud, or you hear a ringing or hissing sound in your ears (known has tinnitus). Depending on the degree of your hearing loss, your treatment will differ. For instance, people with permanent hearing loss will benefit from hearing aids.
How do I know if I need hearing aids?
If you have experienced any of the symptoms of hearing loss, schedule a consultation with one of our audiologists. During your consultation, tests will be administered to determine the degree of hearing loss you have. If your results are below average, you may require medical intervention.
