How Hearing Aids Can Help Cope with Hearing Loss

The loss of hearing can be frustrating and scary. This is because our hearing is so important in communication. In fact, Helen Keller, who famously overcame blindness and deafness to become a successful author and activist, claimed that “deafness is a much worse misfortune” than blindness.

If you suffer from hearing loss, then there is no need to give up hope.

Hearing aids can give you back your hearing.

There are ways to improve your hearing. You may even be able to have it restored to the full strength! Though some people are hesitant to use them, hearing aids are the most common, and often the most effective, way to regain your hearing.

Regardless of your age, you deserve to have great hearing! The professional medical team at the office of Dr. Joshua Light is available to offer you the medical products, services, and counseling that you need to regain your hearing.

Hearing loss is more common than you think.

You may not realize it, but hearing loss is a very common problem for Americans. If you think that you are experiencing difficulty in hearing or sounds you are accustomed to are feeling faint, you’re probably right.

  • Hearing loss begins for many people as early as age forty.
  • Two-thirds of people with hearing loss are younger than the typical retirement age.
  • Roughly 10 million Americans have endured hearing loss caused by loud sounds over a long period of time.
  • Approximately one in five people who could be helped by hearing aids actually wear them.

Fortunately, hearing aids are as effective and as affordable as they have ever been. Most hearing loss can be treated simply by selecting and using the right hearing aids. The problem is that most people who should be wearing them do not.

If you are suffering with a decline in your hearing, you should not be embarrassed or self-conscious about wearing hearing aids. They can restore your primary means of communication and protect you from a slew of other problems.

It’s not just in your ears…

Hearing loss is an obstacle overlooked by many people. After all, it is easy to adjust the volume of your radio to compensate for your impairment. The problem is that hearing loss is rarely overcome as easily as you expect. Most people with diminished hearing endure a number of problems in addition to their compromised ability to perceive sound.

Research has connected hearing loss to all of the following changes:

  • Irritability and frustration
  • Fatigue and depression
  • Stress
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Loneliness
  • Diminished alertness
  • Compromised cognitive abilities
  • Poor job performance
  • Weakened psychological health

There is more at risk than just your hearing. Put the brakes on bad moods, social isolation, and poor brain health by getting a comprehensive hearing test with Dr. Light.
