Hearing loss is usually a gradual process, making it easy to disregard the subtle changes in your ability to perceive sounds. Unlike children, who get regular hearing tests in school, adults rarely even consider scheduling an appointment. You wouldn’t disregard a decline in your eyesight, so why wouldn’t you monitor your hearing health?
Here are 6 reasons to have your hearing examined regularly:
- Spotting the Signs: Everyday situations can expose potential hearing problems. Do you regularly need people to repeat what they said? Do you have a hard time hearing in loud settings? Are you constantly turning the volume on your TV up? If you answered “yes” to the majority of these questions, it’s time for a hearing examination.
- 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: It’s even more worthwhile to call us for an appointment if hearing impairment runs in your family.
- Establishing a Baseline: We will use baselines, which will supply a frame of reference for further comparison to track changes to your hearing over time.
- Early Diagnosis and Treatment: Problems, such as earwax accumulation, or noise-induced hearing loss, can be recognized early on by routine hearing tests, preventing further damage.
- Diagnose Medical Conditions: Hearing loss can on occasion signal inherent medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, or kidney disease. If you do have one of these disorders, managing it may help your hearing.
Your physical safety, emotional well-being, and social life are some of the far-reaching consequences of untreated hearing loss. Hearing aids can substantially improve your hearing and overall quality of life, permitting you to fully take part in conversations, enjoy social gatherings, and remain alert to important sounds in your environment.
