Hearing Care: Five Reasons to Get a Hearing Test and Evaluation

Jun 29, 2010 by

Seeing or hearing? Which sense is more important to you? Of course, both of them. Annual eye exams are very common. Checking for glaucoma, cataracts and cornea disease are crucial to medical management. Hearing loss, on the other hand, develops more gradually. In fact, it may take the hearing impaired individual 4 to 5 years to seek hearing care. It is important that family and friends be honest and share their concerns. HearFlorida has five important reasons to have your hearing checked yearly:

  • Gradual changes in your hearing may require a change in your hearing aid prescription.
  • A decrease in your hearing may be related to wax build-up.
  • A complaint of tinnitus (ear ringing) may be a precursor to early inner ear disease.
  • A recent complaint of ear popping or ear pain may be related to eustachian tube dysfunction or middle ear infection.
  • Increased difficulty understanding speech may be a sign of further hearing loss. 

Remember; don’t let your hearing fade away. Contact us for quality hearing care from the hearing professionals at HearFlorida and get a hearing test and evaluation today.
