The statistics are staggering but it’s a subject not often heard about. It’s hearing loss, and it’s not just a symptom of old age. Over 25 million Americans between ages 20 and 70 have high frequency hearing loss from exposure to loud noises at work or even in leisure activities.
About 60 percent of deployed military service men and women have noise-induced hearing loss. One in five Americans have hearing loss in at least one ear, which equates to 48 million and fifty percent of those are of working age – 18 to 64. Untreated hearing loss can be life-altering. Fifty percent of all communication is done through hearing. Without hearing, people tend to withdraw, lose confidence and lose independence. It robs them of life’s enjoyment. By restoring a patient’s hearing, we have seen people’s lives change as they once again become active in conversations and in life in general.
At the Shea Hearing Aid Center, we are passionate about helping people hear again. We enrich the lives of the people we help every day by providing the most advanced technology and counseling tools available, which allows our patients to reconnect with their friends, their loved ones their world.
