NATIONAL hearing specialist clinic ihear Australia is working with the community to provide better hearing.
Hearing is a vital sense, yet there are many Australians struggling with hearing loss including those under the age of retirement.
“As the world gets louder, the age of those with hearing loss gets younger,” ihear Audiologist Cliff Casey said.
“The effect of noise exposure means we are increasingly seeing people in their 40s and 50s coming to us with a hearing problem.”
Offering a range of solutions to suit all types of hearing loss, lifestyles and budgets, ihear looks after the hearing needs of a variety of locals including pension and DVA card holders, retirees, workers and children.
“Recent studies show one in six Australians have a treatable hearing loss, yet the majority of people wait up to 7-10 years before they do anything about their hearing difficulties,” Cliff said.
“Today’s advances in digital technology mean the majority of hearing losses are treatable, with hearing aids providing better performance than ever, especially in noisy environments,”
In support of Hearing Awareness Week which runs until Sunday, August 28, ihear are offering free hearing screenings for you and a friend until Friday, September 16.
