Determining your hearing loss and it’s severity-Free of charge!
Improve Your Quality of Life by Scheduling a Free Hearing Test
The purpose of a test for hearing loss is to determine not only if you have hearing loss, but how mild or severe it is. A thorough hearing test can also help define the type of hearing loss you have: conductive, sensorineural, or mixed, and whether it will respond best to medical treatment or hearing aids. Elite Hearing Centers’ specialists are equipped with the latest technology and are trained to provide an accurate, professional, and thorough hearing evaluation.
The Importance of Regular Hearing Tests
With age, hearing loss becomes more likely. About 14% of people ages 45 to 64 have some degree of hearing loss, but that rises to more than 30% among people who are 65 or older. Because your hearing can change over time, experts recommend hearing testing every 10 years until age 50 and then every 3 years after that. Your ability to hear impacts your ability to connect with people, things, and the world around you.
Types of Hearing Loss
Part of managing your hearing health is understanding your hearing loss. There are two primary types of hearing loss: sensorineural and conductive. It is also possible to experience both types and experience mixed hearing loss. Sensorineural, or nerve deafness, is hearing loss caused by a problem with the nerves that control hearing and/or the structure of the ear. This hearing loss is usually permanent and can vary in severity. Conductive hearing loss is caused by a blockage of sound transmission through the ear. This type of hearing loss can occur at any point in life and is often caused by ear infections or fluid in the ears. This type of loss is usually treatable. Patients can also experience a combination of these types of hearing loss.
When to Get a Hearing Test
Beyond the recommendation to have your hearing tested every 10 years until age 50 and then every 3 years after age 50, it is important to frequently self-evaluate your ability to hear and connect with those around you. If you are asking others to repeat themselves more frequently, have a harder time distinguishing conversations from other noises, or are unable to effectively communicate on the telephone, it may be time to schedule an appointment to test your hearing at Elite Hearing Centers.
