Hearing loss is a common problem among people of all ages. However, you may not even realize that you're experiencing this issue because hearing gradually deteriorates over time. In other words, it's not something that happens overnight. Fortunately, hearing aids can help many people suffering from hearing loss. These devices amplify sound, making it easier for you to hear the world around you.
If you think you have hearing loss, contact Arizona ENT for issues relating to the ears, nose and throat. Our medical professionals in Sun City and Sun City West can provide you with hearing aids as a way to treat your hearing loss. How do you know if it's time for you to consider hearing aids? Read on to learn the warning signs:
You have trouble hearing your friend talk to you when you're in a noisy restaurant
When you sit with a friend at a restaurant, there's usually background noise. People with hearing loss have trouble tuning out the background noise so they can understand the person speaking to them. If this often happens to you, you probably need to consider hearing aid treatment.
You turn up the volume on your TV or radio, and other people in the room complain that it's too loud
Sometimes it's difficult to hear the dialogue in a TV show, especially when there's music playing at the same time. If you turn up the volume and people in the room say it's up too loud, you probably have hearing loss.
When you're in a group setting, you struggle to follow the conversation
When there are several people talking together in a group, you may strain to hear what everyone is saying. If this describes your situation, you probably need to get a hearing evaluation.
