Admitting that you might have hearing loss can be difficult. In fact, it often takes years before people seek help. There can be many negative consequences that can develop if a person puts off a hearing test. Because the causes of hearing loss can vary significantly, it is extremely important to have a hearing evaluation done early. Temporary hearing loss can typically be treated by a physician and is caused by such things as:

  • Punctured ear drum
  • Infection
  • Build–up of fluid
  • Excessive ear wax

A free, comprehensive hearing evaluation will be able to determine whether you are experiencing temporary hearing loss, or if it's permanent. If permanent hearing loss is indicated, your audiogram results will indicate the type and severity of the loss you have. Delaying treatment can significantly compromise one's quality of life. Some of the emotional symptoms of untreated hearing loss can include:

  • An increased withdrawal from normal social activities and events
  • Stress, fatigue and even depression
  • Increased anger and irritability
  • Feeling annoyed at others when you can't understand or hear what they are saying
  • Increased nervousness and anxiety when in social situations
  • Loss of self confidence

Our website has been developed to help anyone who may be experiencing hearing loss get the latest information on available treatment options. Beltone's Professional Hearing Care staff is here to help you care for your hearing health.

Having regular hearing tests is as important as having annual physicals, eye exams and dental checkups. Because most hearing loss occurs gradually, it is essential to have your hearing checked regularly–especially for individuals 50 years of age or older. Diagnosing hearing loss at its earliest stages can prevent further damage to your hearing, and prevent much of the emotional stress that is associated with progressive hearing loss.
