Should I Test My Hearing?
Hearing loss is much more common than you may think. It’s also commonly ignored. Studies show that 1 in 5 Americans know their hearing isn’t as good as it used to be, but more than half of them have never had their hearing checked. While it may not seem like a serious condition, hearing loss can lead to more complicated health issues down the road and have a negative effect on one’s well-being. If you find yourself straining to hear during conversations, or if you’re experiencing pain or ringing in your ears, it’s time to schedule a hearing evaluation.
What Does It Involve?
Hearing evaluations, or tests, are assessments of your hearing by an audiologist, or hearing specialist. The purpose of a hearing evaluation is to determine the nature and degree of your hearing loss and the best treatment options. We’ll measure your ability to hear different sounds, pitches or frequencies through a number of painless, noninvasive tests — but primarily through your ability to hear certain tones and sounds through earphones. Our audiologists will then go over the test results with you and discuss what they mean for your condition and suggest treatment options.
