Understanding Hearing Loss
On average, people with hearing loss wait almost 10 years before they do something about it. Too few people make a timely decision to take active steps to recover their hearing and increase their quality of life. If you think you may have hearing loss, try this quick and easy at-home hearing self-assessment to find out if you should talk to a hearing professional.
Don't wait too long. Studies show that hearing loss can significantly affect your quality of life: More than half of people who do not wear a hearing aid surveyed claim that they feel lonely, disconnected and experience considerable loss in the convenience and comfort of life. Wearing a hearing aid every day can bring the joy of everyday moments and sounds back into your life.
Often it's challenging to recognize hearing loss as it is happening gradually because you can only hear what you hear. That is why the things you hear may still seem right to you, even though you may already experience a slight hearing loss. The truth is that your brain simply adjusts to the new situation and compensates for the weakened signals coming from the ears. After a while your brain literally forgets how to hear, because it does not remember the sound of words.
It does not have to be that way. Modern hearing aids offer a wide range of functions and variety. Your hearing care professional will help you make the choice that is perfect for you. They will consider your hearing needs, the shape of your ear canals, your lifestyle, your budget, and your individual hearing preferences.
