Do You Have Hearing Loss?

Knowing the status of your hearing health is just plain smart.

Even if you don't think you have a hearing loss, you might. In fact, it can take years to recognize hearing loss. After all, for so many, it comes on gradually.

Many people don't realize how easy it is to get a hearing test by a qualified hearing care professional and how straightforward the test itself is. In fact, many registered and licensed hearing care professionals provide free hearing evaluations.

The first step is simply finding a registered hearing care professional near you. Ask friends for recommendations; speak with your primary care provider; go to your local phone book yellow pages; or search the Internet for online healthcare directories.

The hearing test itself is fairly simple. Most include three basic components:
  1. Questions about your hearing and general health;
  2. A look at your ear canal and eardrum with a special magnifying light called an otoscope while you are seated; and
  3. A series of sound prompts played for you while you are seated in a glassed sound booth with specially designed headphones. The hearing care professional will communicate with you through the headphones to determine if you are hearing different types of sounds and words at different volumes.
If the hearing care professional finds that you do have a hearing loss and recommends hearing aids, there is absolutely no need to make a decision on the spot. Just look at your options, and think about it.

So don't wait another day to learn the status of your hearing health.
