Fact: People with hearing devices often find themselves fitting right in because they’re able to hear and respond to people better than they were before. Hearing technology has become an avenue to communication.
Fact: This is no longer the case. Hearing devices have become small and sophisticated pieces of technology. With all the options made available to the patient, each hearing device is even personalized to fit their needs comfortably.
Fact: The belief that only older people wear hearing devices is a thing of the past. We have found more cases of hearing loss in younger generations than ever before, largely due to prolonged exposure to loud noises through earbuds and concerts. By treating hearing loss at a younger age, you can adapt much more quickly to wearing hearing devices. People who confront their hearing loss early can even help prevent further damage.
Fact: Some easily detectable signs of hearing loss include asking people to repeat themselves, listening to the television at higher volumes than before, and having trouble understanding people in crowds. Although these are good indicators, the only way to truly identify your hearing loss is through scheduling a hearing evaluation.
