Ask an Expert: When To Treat Hearing Loss

Question: Why is it better to treat hearing loss sooner rather than later?


Answer:

There are many good reasons. Perhaps, the most compelling is the fact that our ears transmit sound to the brain for processing which results in understanding. Without such stimulation to the brain of soft everyday sounds, changes to the brain can occur. Lack of stimulation can manifest itself in many forms, from poor word understanding and distortion of sound to possible effects on memory. You can easily see the importance of good hearing health.

Fortunately, when hearing loss occurs, the lost stimulation can be reproduced by the use of a hearing aid. Newest technological advances have transformed the abilities of hearing aids, and our Doctors of Audiology are skilled in procedures for programming devices specifically to fit your lifestyle with optimal results.
