What are the first signs of hearing loss?

Hearing loss typically develops gradually over many years; so the effects become noticeable a little at a time. This makes it more difficult for those affected to recognize that they are actually suffering from a hearing impairment. Often times, its relatives, friends, or colleagues who are the first to realize that something is wrong.

However, there are clear signs to help you evaluate if your hearing is as it should be. For instance; perhaps you find it difficult to understand a phone conversation clearly. Or, maybe your family complains about the volume when you are listening to the radio or television. Do you find it difficult to follow a conversation in a restaurant or in noisy environments like traffic on a busy road? Do you ever feel exhausted after family celebrations because listening takes such an effort? Is it easier to hear when you are able to look at the person talking to you?

These are all typical signs of a hearing impairment. But don’t worry; hearing loss is not something that you have to simply endure. You can – and should – do something about it, and we’re here to help!
