About hearing loss
Hearing loss is popularly associated with advanced age. Though your chances of hearing loss do increase with age, a surprisingly high percentage of people with hearing loss are much younger than you’d think. Traffic, machinery, music, and TV all contribute to noisy environments that can cause hearing loss – at any age.
More than 500 million people worldwide suffer from some degree of hearing loss. You might be one of them. If you are, a hearing aid can help you regain your hearing so you can live the life you’re used to.
