It is common for most people to ignore their hearing loss problems. Everyone tends to believe that people who suffer from hearing loss are usually over the age of 70. Well recently, we have seen an increase in younger people being affected by hearing loss, which is mostly attributed to “noise-induced hearing loss.” Actually, more than half of Americans with hearing loss are only age 55! With all the negative effects of hearing loss, people still seem to let it go untreated. That’s why at Krista Szalc, Audiology, PLLC, we urge you to get your hearing checked and tested.
Don’t let your fear of wearing a hearing device stop you from getting your hearing loss treated. With the recent advances in hearing aids and hearing aid technology, that is a problem of the past. Today’s hearing aids are designed to be very discreet and nearly invisible, and at the same time give you the hearing ability you need.
If you ever find yourself struggling to hear what your friends, family, or coworkers are saying, it’s time to take action. The Hornell & Dansville Hearing Centers of Krista Szalc, Audiology, PLLC provide quality hearing testing services and are always here to help those with hearing loss. We are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about anything involving your hearing. Many older adults feel as though their hearing loss is not that important as it is a natural coming of age, but we disagree. Statistics show that only one out of three (33%) individuals over the age of 60 acquire hearing loss in their lifetime. Therefore hearing loss is NOT the norm.
Your hearing should always be taken care of properly and by a certified hearing care professional. Contact us today to make an appointment at one of our three convenient locations in Western New York.
