Lake Hearing

Hearing loss can happen at any age and can be caused by many factors. Some people may suspect that they have hearing loss, but not all people know that they have a problem. You may not realise that you have hearing loss, because it’s often a gradual process. That’s why it’s important to have your ears checked, even if you think you’re fine. Hearing evaluations are important to ensure that individuals are receiving the best treatment for their hearing loss and can lead to an improved quality of life. 

The results of the hearing evaluation provide the hearing care professional with the information needed to make a diagnosis and to recommend the best treatment options for the hearing loss, such as hearing aids, cochlear implants, or assistive listening devices. These are technological advances that can help you hear better. It’s important to get in touch with a hearing care professional to determine what’s right for you and not to rely on Personal Sound Amplification Products to address your hearing difficulties. It’s also possible that you don’t need any treatment – with the right advice, you may be able to make lifestyle changes that will help you get the most out of your hearing. 

What are the signs of hearing loss?

Hearing loss is a lot more common than you think, in fact one in six Australians has some degree of hearing loss. unfortunately this number is expected to rise to one in four by 2050. If you have any of these signs or symptoms, you may have some hearing impairment which needs to be investigated:

  1. Speech and other sounds seem muffled and you think people mumble when they speak
  2. Have difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds (e.g., car’s blinker, birds, doorbell, telephone, alarm clock)
  3. Struggle understanding conversations when you are in a noisy place, such as a restaurant or in gatherings
  4. Have difficulty understanding speech over the phone and ask people to repeat themselves
  5. You ask others to face you when having a conversation and speak more slowly and clearly
  6. You turn up the volume of the television or radio which is too loud for others
  7. Miss sounds around the house or workplace that others hear (e.g., machine beeps, fans)
  8. Avoid groups and social gatherings as you are worried about mishearing others 
  9. Have a high-pitched noise or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  10. You are hypersensetive to certain sounds (certain sounds are uncomfortable or create pain)
Hearing loss can affect work and social life 

“Hearing loss can have a considerable impact on a person’s life. It can limit a person’s educational and job opportunities due to impaired communication. The person may be unable to participate in conversations, making it difficult to interact with other people in the workplace. It can also lead to social withdrawal due to reduced interaction and communication with others. This can lead to feelings of frustration, loneliness and isolation. In children, it can cause developmental issues and learning difficulties if untreated.
