Hearing Aid Fact from Fiction
The Perception of Hearing Aids
There are perceptions of hearing loss and hearing aids that just aren’t true.
Advancements in science and technology have debunked a lot of the myths
associated with hearing loss. Here are five of the most common hearing loss
Myth #1: There’s no treatment for hearing loss.
Fact: Hearing loss could be irreversible, and even if it isn’t, it can be
helped. Hearing aids are the most recommended and effective treatment for
hearing loss. Custom programmed by a trained professional, today’s hearing
aids can help people with even severe hearing loss hear, thus improving their
overall quality of life.
Myth #2: Your doctor will tell you if you need hearing aids.
Fact: Most general practitioners don’t have time to test for hearing
loss. According to The Better Hearing Institute, as of 2017 only 23% of adults
reported having their hearing screened during a physical exam.
Myth #3: Hearing aids are hard to use.
Fact: Hearing aids have come along way in just the past few years.
Advancements in processing speeds and hearing science enable hearing aids to
distinguish speech from noise, detect sound direction and adjust to specific
environments automatically. Your hearing aids can be worn all day with little
attention if they’ve been fitted and programmed by a hearing professional.
Myth #4: Hearing aids will make you stand out.
Fact: Today’s hearing aids are much more discreet than in the past.
There are even types that can fit deep into your ear canal, making them
invisible to others.
Myth #5: Hearing aids aren’t worth the trouble.
Fact: Hearing loss can have a significant negative impact on your
quality of life. According to a study done by The National Council on the
Aging (NCOA), untreated hearing loss has serious emotional and social
consequences for seniors.
