Hearing tests aren’t always a routine part of an annual exam, especially for younger people. Regardless, you should request a hearing screening from your general practitioner if you:

• Have even minor trouble hearing.
• Have been told by others that you might have a hearing loss.
• Are an older adult.

On average, people wait seven years from the time they realize they have hearing loss before getting their hearing checked – often because they are afraid to know for sure. If you suspect you have a hearing loss or have heard it from others, it’s important to get your hearing checked so you can start enjoying all of the sounds you’ve been missing for so long. Additionally, untreated hearing loss can lead to falls, social isolation and depression. If you’re nervous to go by yourself, recruit a friend or family member to go with you for support, and rest assured in the knowledge that you’re not alone: 36 million people in the United States alone have hearing loss.
