Do you find yourself turning up the volume on the TV? Do you have difficulty following conversations, especially in a crowd? Do you frequently ask people to repeat what they said?
These are common signs of hearing loss and are good reasons to come in for auditory testing with Annapolis Hearing Aid Associates. Our well trained and experienced staff can conduct testing to determine if you have lost some degree of hearing and work with you to address the loss with appropriate treatment.
Hearing loss can be caused by a variety of factors and conditions. One of the most common, and growing, causes of hearing loss is repeated exposure to loud noise, also known as noise induced hearing loss. The use of earbuds to listen to music or podcasts, working in a noisy environment such as a factory, or repeated exposure to very loud noises can be the cause of this type of permanent hearing loss.
Treating Hearing Loss
There are a range of treatment options, depending on the degree of your hearing loss and how it may be affecting your daily quality of life. In some cases, simple lifestyle changes can address mild hearing loss. But in the case of moderate to severe hearing loss, hearing aids can provide excellent results and help you regain your sense of confidence in your hearing.
Technology has had a huge impact on hearing aid devices, providing many improvements in both sound quality and interaction with today’s electronic world. Today’s hearing aids can be made to fit snugly in or behind the ear and offer digital connectivity to cell phones, TV and many other types of electronic devices.
If you have concerns about hearing loss, schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists for a screening.
