How To Know If You Have A Hearing Loss
Our ability to hear is housed in an intricate human system that allows us to process sound and understand the world around us. When that system becomes compromised, it’s generally the accumulated result of simply living life – environmental sounds, exposure to loud noises or machinery, perhaps from some type of medication or inherited condition. Termed “sensorineural” or “nerve loss,” it occurs gradually and can go unnoticed for many years.
So how can you tell? You may have started asking others to repeat something they just said. There may be a constant ringing sound in your ears. Voices may sound somewhat muffled. Your television or radio may sound fine to you, but overpowering to others. In a group conversation, you’re having trouble keeping up. These are all possible symptoms, but the only way to be sure is to have your hearing tested.
What a difference today makes. You could pretend you understood what your neighbor just said. You could tell yourself it’s just a phase. You could survive another day of just “getting by.” But why should you? You deserve to enjoy the very best of life – not just how it looks and how it feels, but also how it sounds. We can help you turn up the quality of your life by helping you hear it better. And when we’re through, you won’t just hear better, you’ll be better informed, too. Because at Dobbins Hearing Service, we are dedicated to making your world a better (sounding) place.
