When Should You See a Hearing Specialist?
Your hearing is an important part of who you are. Hearing allows you to communicate with your friends, family, and coworkers, and to be a part of the conversation. Many people don’t think about how often they should have their hearing tested. If you find yourself having a difficult time hearing the conversation or you hear a ringing in your ears, then it’s probably time to visit a hearing specialist.
It may seem obvious that you need to have your hearing checked if you are experiencing a problem. But what if everything seems fine?
When Was the Last Time You Had Your Hearing Tested?
For many adults, the last time they had their hearing tested was in grade school. If that’s true for you, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Ideally, all adults should have their hearing tested after the age of 21.
Even if you don’t have hearing loss, you should continue to have your hearing tested annually, especially if you are over the age of 60. Annual hearing tests will ensure any signs of hearing loss are caught early and will help you prevent any issues with your speech comprehension or cognitive decline.
