Happy (belated) World Hearing Day! This past Wednesday, March 3, 2021, was World Hearing Day 2021, the marker of the World Report on Hearing for the World Health Organization. This year’s theme is “Hearing Care for All!” As we celebrate our ability to hear and aim for a better hearing health future, it’s time to spread the word about hearing loss and its solutions.
The Trouble of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is sadly more common than ever today. One would think that hearing loss is something that people only experience as they get older, but today, children, young adults, and adults have higher rates of hearing loss, too. Exposure to loud noises, repeated ear infections, and clogging are some of the causes. Unfortunately, it may be years later before people realize they have hearing loss, and without addressing it soon, people can experience higher levels of social isolation, confusion, mental deterioration, loss in earnings, and depression.
The Gift of Audiology
Thankfully, audiology addresses all forms of hearing loss and can help give people a brighter future. Audiologists are experts on the ear, how it affects other parts of the body, and vice versa. Audiology practices like Clarity Audiology can provide brain health tests along with hearing evaluations and are well-skilled to prescribe the best hearing solution for you or your loved one.
At Clarity Audiology, an audiologist will make hearing aid recommendations if needed, with same-day hearing aid trials for you to test out the latest technology. Should you get a hearing aid from us, you’ll have a 60-day risk-free trial that lets you get a 100% refund should the devices be dissatisfactory. At any rate, customers have happy reviews with Clarity, thankful that they can hear clearly once again.
Prevention Is Key
Audiology certainly makes life clearer. Even so, prevention is the best method for protecting one’s hearing. Many suffer from some level of hearing loss or intermittent tinnitus because of exposure to loud noises via earbuds, live concerts, lawn mowers, musical instruments, or occupational hazards. Clarity Audiology also offers custom earplugs fit for your particular situation. Cold weather can also cause ears to hurt, which is why covering your ears in winter is important. Overall, keeping healthy and fit will help your hearing stay healthy.
Thankfulness for Hearing
When we can hear, we can pick up and balance background noises like family members’ footsteps, the breeze outside, and the birds chirping away. We can join in better with conversations, and keep up relationships. Happy World Hearing Day! We hope you have a clear hearing day!
