#HearingFactFriday: Age-related hearing loss can’t be restored but can be helped

It should not be surprising that the odds of having age-related hearing loss — clinically known as Presbycusis — increase as we age. Statistics tell us that one in three people 60 and older have hearing loss, two-thirds of people 70-plus have it, and four out of every five persons older than 85 struggle to hear.

As today’s hearing fact reminds us, sadly there is no way to restore age-related hearing loss once it starts.

But what might be surprising to some is that age-related hearing loss can be treated. Hearing aids can help people live life unencumbered by the typical burdens of hearing loss, as millions of new hearing aid wearers discover every day.

To discover how hearing aids can help you hear your best, give a pair a try. To try a pair, call 1-888-908-1845 or click here, and we’ll help you set up an appointment with a hearing healthcare professional near you.
