Subtle changes in your hearing can be difficult to notice because of how slowly hearing loss typically advances. Although children are regularly tested, most adults don’t even consider scheduling a hearing test like they would their vision. So why would your hearing be any less critical than your vision?
Here are 6 reasons to get your hearing examined regularly:
- Spotting the Signs: Potential hearing issues can be exposed by day-to-day situations. Do you frequently need people to repeat what they said? Do you have a hard time hearing in loud environments? Are you constantly turning the volume on your TV up? If you said “yes” to the majority of these questions, it’s time for a hearing exam.
- Following Guidelines: Until you turn 50, you should get a hearing exam every 10 years and every 3 years after that, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
- Family History Matters: If other family members have hearing issues, this is an ideal reason to schedule a hearing test with us.
- Establishing a Baseline: We will utilize baselines, which will supply a frame of reference for further comparison to track changes to your hearing over time.
- Early Diagnosis and Treatment: Regular hearing exams can detect issues early on, such as earwax buildup or noise-induced hearing loss, allowing for quick intervention and preventing further damage.
- Diagnose Medical Conditions: Inherent medical conditions, like kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, or high blood pressure can on occasion be indicated by hearing loss. Addressing these conditions could improve your hearing.
Your physical safety, emotional well-being, and social life are some of the far-reaching consequences of neglected hearing loss. Hearing aids can substantially improve your hearing and general quality of life, permitting you to fully participate in conversations, enjoy social gatherings, and remain alert to important sounds in your environment.
