Vision and hearing are the two senses we rely upon the most. As you get into your 50′s, vision and hearing loss begin to affect your quality of life and safety. That’s why our practice has made the decision to expand our clinical care to screen for the sensory wellness of both vision and hearing.
Dual Sensory Loss is real. Vision and hearing are vital to the quality of our lives as we grow older.
- Hearing and visual loss begin to affect the quality of life in our early 40′s and greatly increases as we enter into our early 60′s.
- Early loss of hearing, especially in high frequencies, makes it more difficult to discern noise from conversations. The most common symptoms are the need to turn up the volume and having difficulty communicating in loud or crowded environments.
- A majority of adults will experience both vision and hearing loss, which has been shown to cause withdrawal, depression and a reduced quality of life.
With leading edge technology and innovative proven techniques in vision restoration, patients have been able to address vision loss much earlier in life to continue to enjoy the world they live in. The same now holds true for hearing health. By addressing hearing loss early on, hearing loss can often be controlled. By attending to Dual Sensory Loss, you can enjoy the sounds of your lifestyle along with the benefits of optimized vision.
