Subtle changes in your hearing can be hard to recognize because of how slowly hearing loss typically advances. Even though children are frequently tested, most adults don’t even consider scheduling a hearing test like they would their vision. So why should your hearing be any less relevant than your eyesight?
It’s important to have regular hearing exams, here are six reasons why:
- Spotting the Signs: Potential hearing issues can be revealed by day-to-day situations. Do you frequently need people to repeat what they said? Do you have a difficult time hearing in loud environments? Are you frequently turning the volume on your TV up? It’s time for you to get your hearing tested if you replied yes to the majority of these questions.
- Following Guidelines: The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association suggests hearing screenings every 10 years until age 50, and every three years thereafter.
- Family History Matters: If other members of your family have hearing problems, this is an excellent reason to schedule a hearing test with us.
- Establishing a Baseline: Baseline hearing tests give a frame of reference for future hearing assessment comparisons, allowing you to track changes in your hearing over time.
- Early Diagnosis and Treatment: Problems, such as earwax buildup, or noise-related hearing loss, can be identified early on by regular hearing tests, avoiding further damage.
- Diagnose Medical Conditions: Root medical conditions, including kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, or high blood pressure can in some cases be indicated by hearing loss. Treating these conditions may improve your hearing.
Your physical safety, emotional well-being, and social life are some of the far-reaching consequences of neglected hearing loss. Remaining alert to significant sounds of your environment, enjoying social situations, and being able to fully participate in conversations, are all examples of how hearing aids can enhance your overall quality of life.
