Healthy Hearing and Vision are keys to a better life.
Nearly 1 out of 5 seniors experience vision problems, but more than 1/3 of the same group is losing their hearing. Make the choice to leave inadequate hearing behind!!
It is the recommendation of our practice that each of our patients age 58 and older begin to schedule their annual hearing evaluation. Your hearing is important to us, let us help you establish where your hearing is today and determine if now is the time to take advantage of 21st century technology. It’s time to hear what you have been missing!
If our initial hearing screening finds you may have some hearing loss, here are the first few steps you can take to start to live better:
- Schedule your complete hearing exam with our Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist, this exam is a benefit and is open to all patients aged 58 and older. There is no charge for this and the exam will take approximately 60 minutes. Our goal is to ensure you have a full understanding of your baseline hearing and what options are available to you.
- Bring a family member or close friend familiar with your lifestyle to the exam, they will be the ones most likely to notice if the TV is turned up too loud or you are constantly asking people to repeat themselves.
- Our hearing workup consists of a computerized audiometric testing to measure your hearing at different sound levels and your comprehension of speech in multiple listening environments. We also perform a Video Ear Exam using a tiny camera to examine your ear canal and eardrum. This procedure lets us identify possible blockages that can cause hearing loss. You can observe this exam on a computer screen.
Hearing aid devices, when fitted properly by a professional to accommodate your needs, will allow you to hear the sounds that have slowly disappeared over the years. Working towards the best result, our specialist will fit you with the device(s) best suited with your lifestyle and for your needs.
Hear all that you have been missing!!
