Do I Have To Get Hearing Aids?

  1. 1. Do I have to get hearing aids?
  2. 2. No, you don’t have to get hearing aids, but you might really want toconsider this information. You may think your hearing really isn’t that bad or that hearing aids cost too much.
  3. 3. So what if you have to turn up the TV and ask people to repeat moreoften. What people don’t realize is the longer youwait to treat hearing loss, the more difficult it can be to correct.
  4. 4. The brain actually interprets what we hear.If you have a hearing loss,even a mild loss, the brain is not receiving all of the information it needs.
  5. 5. Even when those forgotten sounds are reintroduced throughhearing aid amplification,the brain may not be ableto effectively use this new information.
  6. 6. At this point in time,there is no medication or surgery that can correct nerve loss. However, if you seek help in time, hearing aids can help.
  7. 7. Hearing aids not only enhance what is left of your hearing but they actually preserve or maintain your ability toprocess sounds and make sense of conversation.
  8. 8. Consider the costs ofuntreated hearing loss. Ifyou still feel the need towait, remember that it isyour decision. But don’t wait too long!
