Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I don’t think my hearing is that bad, but my spouse and children are often complaining that I’m not hearing well. Do I really need to have my hearing tested if I think it’s still fine?
Answer: Hearing loss occurs very gradually. It typically starts around the age of 40 and slowly progresses over time. Because it’s such a gradual process, the individual with the hearing loss is often not aware how much they are missing. It’s often that others realize you have a hearing problem, long before you realize it. If family members, friends, or co-workers are expressing concerns about your hearing, it is recommended to schedule a hearing test.
