Hearing Loss And Quality of Life

Written by

A lot of people believe that they can simply live with their hearing loss. While it’s certainly possible to go on with hearing loss, doing so dramatically affects quality of life.

Hearing loss can makes communication difficult, which negatively affects your career, relationships and daily interactions with others. As a result, your self-esteem and personal fulfillment take a hit, leaving you with a lowered quality of life.

The Cost of Hearing Loss

Written by

Hearing loss hurts your relationships, making it harder to enjoy social activities and conversation. But it could be taking even more from you.
Research has shown that hearing loss, if left untreated, can cost an individual up to $12,000 a year. And, as time goes on, the cost increases as the individual loses out on raises, opportunities and promotions because of their condition.

It’s time take back your hearing and protect your wallet by scheduling a hearing evaluation today.

Are You At Risk?

Written by

Although hearing evaluations should be performed by licensed professionals, this online hearing test can give you a general idea of the status of your hearing.

Disclaimer. This test should not in any way be used to give an accurate diagnosis of a patient. If you think you may be suffering from hearing loss then always consult your local audiologist (as this test instructs you to do so). This test should merely be used as a guide only.

The Hearing Check is not intended for people with known hearing loss, or who use hearing aids. If you use hearing aids and you still want to take the Hearing Check, you should remove them before taking the Hearing Check. Remember, however, that the Hearing Checks are designed to help identify people who have hearing loss and encourage them to take action.

This Hearing Check will not cover all aspects of hearing nor is it a medical diagnosis. It cannot assess your ability to understand speech through hearing aids. If you would like a full hearing assessment, visit your primary physician and ask for a referral to the ENT or Audiology department at your local hospital.

Signs of Hearing Loss

Detecting Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can sneak up on you. The condition usually develops over a long period of time, making it difficult for the affected individual to notice that they have a problem. It’s important to know the warning signs of hearing loss, so that you can detect the problem and get treatment before it gets in the way of your life. Here are some things to look - and listen - for:

  • Requiring frequent repetition
  • Thinking that others mumble
  • Listening to the TV or radio very loudly
  • Responding inappropriately in conversation
  • Speaking as little as possible
  • Increased stress, embarrassment or annoyance
  • Withdrawal from social events
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Family history of hearing loss

If you notice that you or a loved one experiences two or more of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment at any one of our convenient locations in the New York City area.
