Hearing Loss

What is Hearing Loss? 

A hearing loss occurs when your ability to hear is reduced, making it more difficult for you to hear speech and all the other sounds in life you love. A hearing loss can be caused by many factors, but age and exposure to loud noise are the two most common causes. 

Signs of Hearing Loss 

  • Asking people to repeat themselves
  • Your family complaining the TV volume is up too loud
  • You hear ringing or buzzing noises in your ears 
  • Straining to hear in noisy places
  • Missing out on everyday sounds
