Is your TV volume set as maximum? Do you find yourself straining to hear what your spouse is saying at the dinner table? Do you feel like you are missing key pieces of the discussion at work meetings?
It’s not uncommon as we age to suffer some hearing loss. More than one in 10 Americans – some 36 million of us – have some hearing loss, most people are 65 years of age or older.
The specialists at the Jefferson Balance and Hearing Center can help. First, an evaluation by Jefferson will determine the cause of your problem and craft a personalized plan for you. If your physician determines that you have hearing loss that cannot be resolved with medical or surgical treatment, a hearing aid might be a viable option for you.
If you opt to try a hearing aid, your team at the Center will work with you to help make a selection that works for your needs.
One option you might consider is the Lyric®, a completely invisible hearing device that can be worn 24/7 for up to four months at a time and which does not require daily insertion or changing batteries. New technology in hearing aid improves the function of the devices for you from noise reduction and directional microphones to the use of Bluetooth signals directly to your hearing aid.
