Hearing Loss Information

Most hearing losses occur gradually, so the symptoms are often difficult to recognize.

People might begin turning up the volume on the TV or asking others to repeat themselves. When our hearing begins to fade we tend to forget how things sound. We start to live in a quieter world, unaware that we are missing the softer sounds of everyday life – like the patter of rain or the songs of birds. It might be time to consult a hearing care specialist if you are experiencing one or more of the following problems:

  • People seem to be mumbling
  • You have to strain to hear when someone talks or whispers
  • You have difficulty hearing someone call from behind or from another room
  • You need to watch a speaker’s lips more closely to follow conversation
  • Following a conversation is difficult when you’re in a group of people, for example at a meeting, at church, or during lectures
  • You have to turn up the volume on the TV or radio
  • You have problems hearing clearly on the telephone
  • You have difficulty hearing at the theater, cinema, or other entertainment venues
  • It’s hard to hear in noisy environments, for example in a restaurant or in a car
  • You have begun to limit your social activities due to difficulty hearing and communicating
  • Family, friends, or colleagues mention that they often have to repeat themselves
