GET REG­U­LAR TESTS

Most peo­ple make the mis­take of wait­ing un­til their hear­ing has de­clined be­fore they get their hear­ing checked. In­deed, re­cent re­search com­mis­sioned by Spec­savers re­vealed that 69pc of Ir­ish adults have not had their hear­ing tested in the last five years. Guide­lines vary ac­cord­ing to age, but a hear­ing check is gen­er­ally ad­vised ev­ery two years. Those ex­posed to un­healthy sound lev­els (mu­si­cians, me­chan­ics etc) should get tested yearly.
