#HearingFactFriday: Not enough people take hearing loss seriously

It’s well known that hearing loss is very common, and that your odds of losing your hearing increase significantly as you age.

What’s not as well known, is how rare it is that those with hearing loss do anything to treat it — though one big clue is that you don’t see nearly as many people wearing hearing aids as you do glasses.

So why do so many people just ignore their hearing loss — particularly when the negative effects of hearing loss are also well known, and the benefits of treating hearing loss are so many? Maybe this blog holds a clue.

If you’ve got hearing loss, don’t let it constrain your life. Treat it, and live life to the fullest. You deserve it.

Start by taking our online hearing test or visiting a hearing professional in your area for a comprehensive hearing evaluation. To find one, call 1-888-908-1845 or click here.
