Often we have individuals come into our office who have not had a hearing test in several years. In most cases, this is due to the fact that these individuals have not noticed any significant changes in their hearing. However, sometimes, they do realize a drop in hearing over a period of time but have postponed getting a hearing test for various reasons (i.e. busy schedule, etc).
We suggest annual hearing screenings; and over the past couple of years, we have been trying to make our patients more aware of this so that we can watch for any additional hearing loss. Any changes in hearing need to be properly addressed. This can often be accomplished by adjusting or re-programming the hearing instruments for better performance or by tightening up the fit of a custom hearing aid or earmold in order to allow for increased volume with less feedback.
If it has been a year or longer since your last hearing test or if you have noticed any changes in your hearing, please contact us to schedule a free hearing screening.
