More Individuals Go Without the Use of Hearing Aids

Hearing loss has become a widespread issue for millions of people in the United States. Exposure to loud noise in our environment is on the increase, and the constant use of headphones has caused hearing damage for many. The problem arises, when these individuals ignore the loss of hearing signs, and do not get the treatment they need.

A recent study published by Johns Hopkins University, has shown that aging baby boomers, are not receiving the correct treatment for their serious hearing health problems. According to the study,  “Of the estimated 26.7 million Americans age 50 and older with hearing loss, only about 1 in 7 use a hearing aid.”

It’s importance to create awareness on the importance of hearing aids, and how these units can help in increasing the quality of life of hearing loss sufferers. If you suspect you or a loved-one may suffer from hearing damage, you are urged to visit a quality Miami hearing center, where an audiologist will help in the diagnosis and treatment of your condition.
