Hearing is something most of us take for granted and don’t really value until we start to lose it. Some degree of hearing loss may be a normal part of aging, but many of us hurry that along and even make it worse by not protecting our ears. The ear is a sensitive and complex thing and it does not take much to damage it. Ever leave a rock concert or club with ringing ears? That’s a sign of damage, and if you continue to expose your ears to damaging levels of noise, that ringing can become permanent. If you enjoy rocking out to must via headphones, always keep them at a safe level. If you cannot hear anything around you when you have them on, chances are you have them at a volume level that is damaging your hearing.
If you find yourself needing to turn up the TV, asking people to repeat themselves or having trouble following conversations, especially in large crowds, you should call Paradise Hearing and schedule a hearing test. Should you have significant hearing loss, hearing aids are available that can really help while being discreet and comfortable, so don’t suffer with hearing loss!
