DO YOU NEED A HEARING TEST?

  • Do you often feel like people are mumbling when they talk (you hear but can’t understand)?
  • Do you have difficulty talking on the phone or listening to the TV or radio?
  • Do you have trouble understanding conversations when there is background noise?
  • Do you frequently ask people to repeat what they said to you?
  • Do you avoid social activities because you are afraid you won’t be able to hear?
  • Do you have ringing in your ears?
  • Do you have a history of ear infections?
  • Do you experience dizziness?
  • Do you have a family history of hearing loss?
  • Do you have a history of exposure to loud noises at work, in the military or during recreational activities?
  • Do others tell you that you have a hearing problem?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, consider scheduling a complete hearing evaluation.

TYPES OF HEARING LOSS
Hearing loss comes in many forms. It can range from a mild loss, in which a person misses certain high-pitched sounds, to a total loss of hearing. Hearing loss can be hereditary, or it can result from disease, trauma, certain medications or long-term exposure to loud noises. There are two types of hearing loss:

  • Conductive hearing loss occurs when sound waves cannot reach the inner ear. The cause may be earwax buildup or a punctured eardrum. Medical treatment or surgery can usually restore conductive hearing loss.
  • Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. This type of hearing loss is usually permanent.
