Hearing is essential to our daily lives. There isn’t a moment of our day that we aren’t using our sense of hearing to communicate and make sense of our environment. Yet, as invaluable as hearing might be, we aren’t always aware that our ability to hear well is diminishing.
Symptoms of hearing loss may be hard to recognize. Friends and relatives might complain that you’re not listening or you might notice that you’re shying away from social gatherings because you’re having difficulty following the conversations, especially when there’s background noise. Perhaps the TV or radio seems unusually loud to others when you find it barely audible. A hearing evaluation might be necessary.
