When Do I Need A Hearing Test?

When Do I Need A Hearing Test?

June 5, 2019    Ask the Audiologist, Audiology, Health and Hearing loss

Hearing is an essential part of communication. It involves the ability to detect and make sense of sound in our environment. A decline in hearing ability can lead to increased communication difficulty in all settings, especially background noise. Many people report being able to HEAR, but not UNDERSTAND. These symptoms mostly present themselves gradually; therefore people find themselves compensating for many years before actually getting tested. In certain instances, hearing loss can be sudden and should be diagnosed and treated immediately!

Do you feel like you’re not hearing as well as you think you should? Perhaps you find yourself saying, “What,” or “Huh?” more often than you should.

Do you have ringing in the ear? Is there a solution for Tinnitus?

Do you have ringing in the ear? Is there a solution for Tinnitus?

February 20, 2019    Audiology, Tinnitus

Are you or someone you know experiencing ringing in the ears? You are not alone! TINNITUS is pronounced either ti-NIGHT-us or TIN-i-tus. Both pronunciations are correct; the American Tinnitus Association uses ti-NIGHT-us. The word is of Latin origin, meaning "to ring or tinkle like a bell.” Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound when no external sound is present, and is often referred to as “ringing in the ears.” Tinnitus can also be described as hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping, or clicking sounds - every person suffering from tinnitus has their own variation of sound. The American Tinnitus Association estimates that more than 50 million Americans experience tinnitus. Of these, 12 million have tinnitus that is so severe that medical attention is required. Furthermore, approximately 2 million people have tinnitus that is so severely debilitating they cannot function in their daily lives.
