Hearing Loss - Signs Of Hearing Loss
Statistics estimate that 1 in 6 Australians have hearing loss and like any medical problem, the sooner you address the issue the better. Our ears detect sounds and our brain actually 'hears'. There are many benefits of doing something about a hearing loss including; improved quality of life and protecting against cognitive decline, dementia and depression. Similar to the way our eyes change with age, hearing can also gradually decrease with ageing- this is called presbyacusis. We recommend that after the age of 55, you should have your hearing assessed every 3 years. Book your comprehensive hearing assessment at Melbourne Audiology Centre.
