Christy Naples Hearing Center Can Help Improve Your Hearing Health.
More than 28 million Americans have some type of hearing problem. Hearing difficulties are often unrecognized by the person involved. Children and teenagers seldom complain about the symptoms of hearing loss, and adults may lose their hearing so gradually they do not realize it is happening.
Hear sounds and speech but have trouble understanding? Have difficulty understanding – especially in groups? Have trouble understanding children and women’s voices? Find yourself saying “huh” more often? Respond inappropriately to questions? Find that others mumble a lot? Need to turn up the volume on the TV?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your hearing health could be at risk. Call Christy Naples Hearing Center today.
What Causes Hearing Loss?
• Hearing loss can occur because of age, injury or illness
• Serious infections, such as meningitis
• Head injury
• Listening to very loud music or exposure to loud sounds
Corrective Hearing Devices
Most hearing difficulties can be helped by individually selected, prescribed and fitted hearing instruments. Hearing aid users report higher levels of involvement in social activities, fewer worries and more positive social and family experiences than those who have uncorrected hearing loss
Hearing aid users also report:
• Better family relationships
• Greater independence
• Improved social life
And, family members appear to notice even more benefit from hearing aid use than did the person with the hearing loss!
Hearing Aid Styles
Hearing aids come in a wide range of sizes and styles, including completely in the canal (CIC), in the canal (ITC), in the ear (ITE), behind the ear (BTE) or Receiver-in-the-Canal . The type of hearing aid recommended depends on your individual needs:
