Myths About Hearing Solutions

  • 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 your life.
  • 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.
