Millions of Americans have hearing loss and recent statistics suggest approximately 1 in 10 people have hearing loss and 1 in 3 for people over the age of 65 (NIDCD, 2007). And according to experts, hearing loss is on the rise for all age groups.
You may need to see a hearing professional for a full hearing evaluation. A hearing evaluation allows the hearing professional to determine the type and degree of your hearing loss, as well as how well or how poorly you understand speech. The hearing evaluation will also include a thorough case history as well as visual inspection of the ear canals and eardrum.
The results of the hearing evaluation are used to determine if medical intervention is needed or if the hearing loss would be best treated by hearing aids. If there are any medical concerns shown in the hearing evaluation, the hearing professional will refer you to a physician specializing in the ear, such as an Otolaryngologist.
