  • 1. Hearing Screening to Help Identify and Correct ProblemsHearing loss can be a very gradual process and many people are unaware that theyhave had a decline in their hearing. It is therefore important to receive regular hearingscreenings to identify potential hearing problems over the age of 50.The best way to get a hearing screen is through an Audiologist’s office. They usespecial equipment to present different sounds through a set of headphones into yourears.As you hear these sounds, you are instructed to respond as they occur. This tells thetester which sounds you can discern. These sounds are presented at different volumesand pitches.In this way, the tester candetermine how sensitive yourhearing is and what pitchesyou cannot hear as well. Inaddition, the results showdetails of the hearing loss,allowing the Audiologist toexplain how it impacts you.Depending upon the severityof the loss, differenttreatments may berecommended. Once hearingloss has been detected,regular hearing checks are important to monitor for additional loss.Preventative action is always recommended, regardless of whether you have hearingloss or not. This includes avoiding loud noise when possible and to protect your hearingwith protective earplugs when around loud machinery or music.
