Many people think about scheduling one of our hearing tests in Milton, but delay booking it. In fact, Canadians wait an average of 7 years to address their hearing concerns. However, waiting can make the problem worse. If you’ve been delaying your hearing test, here’s what you need to know.
Other People Know Your Hearing Better Than You Do
It takes us some time to recognize hearing loss. We’re more likely to think we can’t hear the television because it’s been damaged, than because our hearing has changed. But other people, who know the television is the same volume it always was, will recognize our hearing changes before we do. Therefore, if someone is telling you that you need a hearing test, they’re probably right.
Even Minor Hearing Loss Is Enough to Get Help
Perhaps you realize that you have some degree of hearing loss, but you think it’s not enough to warrant a trip to an Audiologist just yet. Don’t delay! Using a hearing aid can prevent further difficulties with speech understanding. Like a muscle, your brain needs to hear sounds in order to continue to make sense of them, but with hearing loss your brain stops hearing sound signals as easily which then causes the hearing pathways to ‘shut down’ preventing the person from understanding speech and conversation; a snowball effect which creates a more significant hearing problem. The longer an individual waits to seek amplification (or hearing aids), the more likely the brain has shut down the hearing pathways which will not be regained. An Audiologist can also recommend other strategies that can help protect your hearing from further damage.
New Hearing Aid Technology Is Discreet
Hearing aids were once clunky and unattractive, and that made many people avoid them. But advanced technologies have enabled new designs that are discreet and offer better hearing ability. Some hearing aids are also held entirely in the ear canal, so no one will notice that you’re wearing them. At HearSay, we offer hearing aids in Milton that utilize the latest advancements in hearing aid technology.
