When Was The Last Time You Had Your Hearing Tested?
We all regularly have yearly physicians, regular dental appointments, and annual blood pressure tests, yet hardly any of us regularly test our hearing.
One of our biggest frustrations as hearing specialists is that we often spend far too much of our time caring for patients when it’s too late – with studies suggesting that the average person waits seven years from noticing first signs of a hearing loss to having their first hearing test, their level of hearing loss gradually worsens throughout this period.
But if they would have acted on the first signs of hearing loss and had their hearing tested right away, we could have done something about it and helped.
We’re living in a world that is becoming increasingly nosier – from being exposed to louder music through headphones than ever before to sporting events and hobbies – as a result, a new report from the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) approximates that 28.8 million adults in the United States have some type of hearing loss.
If you believe that you or a loved one are experiencing signs of hearing loss, whether struggling to hear conversations in noisy environments or needing to have the television louder than those around you, then be sure to schedule a hearing test as soon as possible.
Please ensure you do not fall into the statistic of waiting years to act on your hearing loss. Call us today at 601-437-9595.
