Beltone Hearing Aids — Indiana
It is extremely common to feel apprehensive about having your hearing tested, even if your hearing has begun to negatively impact your quality of life. It might help you to know that hearing loss, to one degree or another, affects more than 34 million Americans, and transcends all age groups. It can also be comforting to know that most loss of hearing can be treated medically, or with hearing aids. Through a comprehensive and free hearing evaluation, the experienced and caring Hearing Care Professionals at Beltone will help determine if you indeed have hearing loss. If a hearing assessment determines that no hearing loss is present, we will let you know!
Because hearing loss tends to happen gradually, it can go undetected for quite some time. However, as it progresses, many individuals find themselves slowly withdrawing from the social, business or family activities they previously enjoyed. It is also important to understand that hearing loss not only affects you, but will eventually begin to negatively affect the people that you interact with regularly, particularly family members. Just as it is important to have regular physical, dental and vision checkups, having annual hearing tests should be a normal part of our overall health routine. There are a number of common warning signs that may indicate the start of hearing loss. If you are experiencing one or more of the following signs, a hearing assessment should be scheduled right away.
- Ringing in the ears
- Although you can hear people speak, you are not able to understand all the words being spoken
- Conversation in groups is increasingly difficult
- People seem to be mumbling more than ever
- You are constantly getting complaints about playing the radio or TV too loudly
- People tell you that you are speaking too loudly
- You find yourself asking people to repeat themselves
- It is difficult to hear with your back to a speaker
- Telephone conversations are becoming more difficult
- You no longer hear everyday sounds such as the doorbell or birds singing
