Coping With Hearing Loss

By Guest writer
Wednesday - August 13, 2008

It is easy to take our senses for granted—that is until we start to lose them. As we age, it is common to notice a decrease in our vision. We often try to hold off getting that first pair of glasses, but sooner or later we just have to give in. Less common is a slight loss of hearing. At first, we may not even realize that we are missing certain parts of words that enable us to understand conversation. As hearing loss progresses, it becomes more difficult to always understand. Simply stated our hearing efficiency becomes impaired as the sensory organ of hearing loses the ability to pick up certain types of sound. As a result we seem to hear OK but we don’t always understand. This very common type of hearing loss is often referred to as “nerve type” hearing loss.

Since there is no medical cure for this condition, many people just try to get along as best as they can without seeking professional help. This is unfortunate since there is much that can be done to address this problem. Virtually everyone with this type of hearing loss can benefit from modern technology. Ohana Hearing Care offers the latest means of testing and analysis of hearing loss from mild loss to severe. We can recommend the best plan for treatment and make sure you stay within your budget.
