There are a lot of different signs to look for in hearing loss, but not everyone notices the signs. The person living with hearing loss oftentimes doesn’t even know that they are experiencing it, since most hearing loss is gradual. Early signs of hearing loss can include having to ask people to repeat themselves often during a conversation, feeling like people mumble all the time, or turning the television louder than other people like it.
During your exam we will determine if you have hearing loss and the type of hearing loss that you have. Different types of hearing loss are caused by different areas in the ear. Some could actually be a medical referral that might be medically or surgically corrected. If there is nothing that can be done medically, that’s where hearing aids come in. Whatever type it is, we will make a recommendation for your next steps.
The sooner someone gets hearing help, the easier the adjustment to hearing better will be and the better the results will be. If someone waits until their hearing loss is severe it takes longer for their brain to get used to hearing well again. It is always recommended that someone gets hearing aids sooner rather than later, as the process is easier and the results are better.
If someone waits too long to get hearing aids, hearing aids will provide more noise and not more clarity as the brain won’t process the sounds anymore. At that point hearing aids won’t help. Once we give them the amplification it’s louder, but it’s not clear. The brain just isn’t processing sound well anymore, and that is an important component of hearing.
