Could Hearing Aids Help Me?

Development, Testing

Despite the growing prevalence of hearing problems among an aging population, many people fail to seek treatment for their symptoms. The otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors) recommend scheduling an appointment at the first signs of hearing problems for both children and adults. Depending on the nature and cause of the problem, hearing aid devices can offer relief for some forms of hearing loss.

Statistics suggest that over 30 million report some degree of hearing loss, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). Although generally associated with aging, people of all ages can suffer from hearing impairment at any time for a number of reasons, such as injuries that affect the transmission of sounds through the ear, or genetic and hereditary conditions.
