Why Hearing Loss Goes Unnoticed
If you’re a parent, then you’ll understand when I say that our children grow up without us even realizing it.
That’s because as you’re with them every day, you don’t notice the small gradual changes of growth. Yet when you look back at photographs of them from just a few years ago, you’re surprised at just how much they have changed.
It’s the exact same with your hearing.
Due to the very slow gradual nature of hearing loss, it becomes practically impossible to notice any measureable difference in your level of hearing day-to-day, yet if you were able to compare the difference between now and several years ago, you would instantly notice the stark difference.
This is one of the main reasons why it’s often the people around us that notice the decline in hearing before we do.
The biggest problem with hearing loss is that an untreated hearing loss continues to worsen and the longer it is left untreated, the worse it gets.
These are the reasons that we’re so passionate about regular hearing assessments and taking action upon noticing the first signs of hearing loss.
Whether it’s simple things like having the television louder than you used to, or you’re struggling to hear conversations in noisy environments, the best decision that you can make is to schedule a hearing assessment as a precaution at the very least.
