When Should I Get My Hearing Tested?
Often, the people around you, your family, friends or co-workers, may notice your hearing loss before you do
Hearing loss is most commonly due to the natural aging process and/or noise exposure throughout your life. Untreated hearing loss is a growing national epidemic.
Regardless of age, one of the first signs of hearing loss is often the inability to hear and understand speech in noisy environments. Even a mild and/or high frequency loss alone will significantly impact clarity of speech, making you a great candidate for hearing aids.
If you're 50 or older, you should get a baseline hearing test, and then continue to follow up with routine exams to monitor any changes in your hearing.
It's also important for farmers, hunters, construction and industrial workers to obtain routine hearing tests due to prolonged exposure to noise.
On average, people wait five to seven years to seek treatment. But don't wait! Research shows the significant impact of untreated hearing loss.
A mild hearing loss is actually the perfect time to get started with hearing aids. Even patients with near normal hearing can benefit from a crisper world of sound.
The majority of patients say they wish they would have done something much sooner.
