Reasons You Should Go Get a Hearing Assessment

Are you or a loved one noticing that your hearing might not be as good as it used to be?

Maybe you don’t hear well in crowded situations. Or maybe your family complains that your television is inordinately loud.

If these happen to you, it is probably time for you to stop in for an assessment.

Still not sure? Consider these thoughts on hearing loss:

Hearing loss is usually gradual.

This means you may not notice that you aren’t hearing as well as you used to.

Have you noticed any of the following:

  • You have trouble hearing while on the phone.
  • You experience difficulty hearing conversations in noisy environments.
  • You generally need to ask people to repeat themselves.
  • You feel you have to strain or use a lot of effort to hear everything in a meeting or conversation.
  • You have difficulty pinpointing the direction from which a sound is coming.
  • You think sounds or voices seem muffled.
  • You have trouble understanding young children or people with higher-pitched voices.
  • You have trouble understanding speech when the speaker is not facing you.
  • You need to turn the volume on the TV up in order to hear comfortably, even though others say it’s too loud.
  • You decline social settings to avoid embarrassment around misunderstandings.
  • You’ve had someone close to you mention that you may have an issue with your hearing.
  • You spend a lot of time in very loud environments.
