How Do I Know It’s Time for a Hearing Test?

Aug 3, 2009 by

Q. My wife complains that I can’t hear, but I keep telling her people just don’t talk as clearly as they used to. How do I know when its time for a hearing test?

A. It’s true that not all people enunciate as clearly as others, but in reality there have been mumblers throughout history and there probably is not a higher percentage today than in the past. The fact of the situation is, if hearing is normal, you can generally understand people in spite of their poor speaking habits. If you find that you ask for frequent repetitions, turn the television higher than others, have difficulty hearing in crowds or noisy places, or find that you hear a conversation but have difficulty understanding the words, it’s time to schedule a hearing test.
