Myths About Hearing
- Trying to hide hearing
loss versus wearing hearing aids.
- What price are you paying
for vanity? Untreated hearing loss is far more noticeable
than hearing aids. If you miss a punch line to a joke, or
respond inappropriately in conversation, people may have
concerns about your mental acuity, your attention span or
your ability to communicate effectively. The personal
consequences of vanity can be life altering. At a
simplistic level, untreated hearing loss means giving up
some of the pleasant sounds you used to enjoy. At a deeper
level, this vanity could severely reduce the quality of
- Only people with serious
hearing loss need hearing aids.
- The need for hearing
amplification is dependent on your lifestyle, your need
for refined hearing, and the degree of your hearing loss.
If you are a lawyer, teacher or a group psychotherapist,
where very refined hearing is necessary to discern the
nuances of human communication, then even a mild hearing
loss can be intolerable. If you live by yourself and
seldom socialize, then perhaps you are someone who is
tolerant of even moderate hearing losses.
- Hearing aids will make
me look "older" and "handicapped."
- Looking older is clearly
more affected by almost all other factors besides hearing
aids. It is not the hearing aids that make one look older,
it is what one may believe they imply. If hearing aids
help you function like a normal hearing person, for all
intents and purposes, the stigma is removed. Hearing aid
manufacturers are well aware that cosmetics is an issue to
many people, and that's why today we have hearing aids
that fit totally in the ear canal.. But more importantly,
keep in mind that "an untreated hearing loss is more
obvious than a hearing aid." Smiling and nodding your
head when you don't understand what's being said, makes
your condition more apparent than the largest hearing aid.
- Hearing loss is very
gradual a most often the patient is the last to realize.
- If you are over the age of
55 and a male you need to have your hearing tested.
Females are generally over the age of 65 before they start
to have troubles. Testing is the only way you will know.
