Hearing Loss FAQ

What are the telltale signs of hearing loss?

If you’re experiencing hearing difficulty in any of the following situations, it’s time to seek help:

  • You experience difficulty hearing in social settings with more than one person in attendance.
  • You feel like people are mumbling in normal conversation.
  • You all too often ask others to repeat what they’ve said, especially women and children with high-pitched voices.
  • You require the TV volume to be increased to the point that it’s too loud for others in the room.
  • One or more of your family members or friends suggest it’s time to have your hearing tested.


My hearing isn’t that bad. Why should I seek help now?

Untreated hearing loss can have a number of negative impacts to your life, including the onset of auditory deprivation. The research concludes that auditory deprivation can cause speech-recognition thresholds to grow increasingly worse without amplification. The good news is that over time, speech discrimination can improve with regular hearing aid use.
