SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
Every day, we experience noise in our environment, such as the noise from the television, portable listening devices, household appliances, and traffic. If these sounds are at a safe level, they don’t damage our hearing. But sounds can be harmful when they are too loud, even for a brief time, or when they are both loud and long-lasting. These sounds can damage sensitive structures in the inner ear and cause noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).
NIHL can be immediate, or it can take a long time to be noticeable. It can be temporary or permanent, and it can affect one ear or both ears. Even if you can’t tell that you are damaging your hearing, you could have trouble hearing in the future, such as not being able to understand other people when they talk, especially on the phone or in a noisy room. Regardless of how it might affect you, one thing is certain: noise-induced hearing loss is something you can prevent.
It’s a good idea to protect your hearing before you incur a hearing loss as a result of exposure to loud sounds. But did you know that if you have a hearing loss, it’s not too late to take steps to save the hearing you have left?
We take our hearing for granted. And just like everything else we take for granted, we don’t realize how important it is until it’s gone. Our purpose is to provide better hearing, but we also think it’s just as essential to provide you with information that can help you to avoid needing to see us at all!
