The average person with hearing loss waits five years before seeking a hearing screening from a health care professional. In our opinion, that’s five years too long to wait for a relatively simple solution to a problem that only gets worse with time.
Is it time for you to schedule a hearing test? These are a few signs that you might be suffering from hearing loss:
If you’ve answered yes to more than one of these questions, it may be time to undergo a hearing test.
A hearing test is nothing to worry about. It involves a simple series of procedures, including a review of your personal information, a physical exam, and a couple of hearing tests designed to evaluate the degree and type of your hearing loss. In a typical hearing test, this is what you can expect:
After your hearing test, your specialist will review your results with you. You’ll discuss the degree, type and pattern of hearing loss, as well as the level at which you can hear and understand conversational speech. With this information, you can discuss treatment solutions and consider whether a hearing aid might be the right solution for you.
Please bring a spouse, family member or friend with you for the “familiar voice” part of the evaluation. Like seeing your doctor or dentist, if you are 55 or older, it is recommended you have a hearing test annually.
