Understanding your hearing
The importance of good hearing
Hearing is one of the senses essential to good overall health. We depend on our hearing for communication with our loved ones, receive information, respond to our surroundings, and enjoy the sounds of the world. Hearing health can be affected by many factors, like our environment, specific events, or genetics. Hearing loss generally develops slowly over many years, and the effects are so gradual that they are not apparent from one day to the next. This can make it difficult for those affected to recognize that they are suffering from hearing loss.
The good news is that there has never been a better time to take action against hearing loss. Most hearing loss can be treated with the right hearing devices. Taking a hearing test is the first step to selecting the right hearing aid for you or your loved one.
