It’s hearing awareness month – have you had your hearing checked?

Question: When should you have your hearing checked?

Answer: Hearing, like your eyes and teeth, should be checked on a regular basis.

“But, how do I know if I’m really having hearing difficulties?” you might ask. If you answer yes to any of the following questions you should have your hearing checked as soon as possible:

  1. Do you often ask people to repeat themselves?
  2. Do others complain that you have the TV or radio too loud?
  3. Do you have difficulty following conversations when there are more than two people speaking?
  4. Do you miss parts of the conversation when there is a lot of noise in the background, such as a noisy restaurant?
  5. Does it sound like others are mumbling or not speaking clearly?
  6. Do you have difficulty hearing when someone is facing away from you, or when you can’t see their lips?
  7. Do you experience ringing, buzzing, or other noises in your ears.

Did you answer yes to any of these questions? If so, phone us to book your appointment today.

The unseen effects of noise

To some degree we all realize that noise isn’t good for our hearing. But, just how much noise is too much? You might be surprised at what everyday items can impact your hearing.

In general noise levels of 85 dB or higher can lead to hearing loss. To give you an idea how loud this is, many common items such as food blenders, lawnmowers, and power tools operate in this range or louder. Many recreational vehicles and average city traffic also reach 85 dB or higher. Ever go to a movie theater and cringe at the noise level? Many movies often reach well above a safe volume.

Noise has other effects too. Several studies have pointed to the fact that prolonged noise exposure can lead to stress, sleep disturbance, and hypertension.

So what can we do as a society and as individuals to minimize the negative effects of noise? One way is through noise laws that ensure we don’t reach annoying or dangerous levels in certain areas such as apartments and residential neighbourhoods. Hearing protection can also help even when using common items like lawnmowers and blenders.

Protecting your hearing aids from spring showers

April showers are certainly here. If you have hearing aids now is the time to start thinking about protecting them from moisture exposure, which can lead to corrosion and damage to the electronics. Most of today’s state-of-the-art hearing aids have a moisture coating to protect them from minor moisture exposure. However, with the wet springs and humid summers we tend to have here in the on the east coast, sometimes this is not enough.

A simple cost effective solution is to use a Dri Aid Kit. These kits are small containers that you put your hearing aids in over night. The kit contains small silicone beads that absorb the moisture from the hearing aids. Using this on a regular basis can help prevent moisture from damaging your hearing aids, extending their life in the long run.

For more information please contact one of our clinics.

Tax time and claiming your hearing aids

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Well maybe not, but, like it or not, our taxes need to be filed. If you have purchased hearing aids in the last year you can claim them under medical deductions. You can also claim for repairs and batteries, so hold on to all of your receipts.
