Hearing loss is not always age related.

Why have a hearing test?

It’s a natural effect of aging, that unfortunately our hearing is prone to decline. But hearing loss can also come about as a result of other factors like exposure to loud noise, trauma, illness and infections, allergies, side-effects of medication, genetics and wear and tear inside the ear.

Hearing loss is often a subject that people don’t like to admit to or talk about. Consequently, many people suffer in silence and miss out on the fun of leading a fully engaged and interactive social and business life, as they grow older.

We’re keen to break down the barriers and taboos surrounding hearing loss to help you achieve a better quality of life. In the same way that we regularly have our eyes and teeth checked, having a hearing test is just as important. After all, we wear glasses to help improve our eyesight – and even as a fashion accessory – without any embarrassment, so why not the same for our hearing?

Are you sure you don't have hearing loss?

Many people also don’t know they actually have hearing loss as the symptoms aren’t always as obvious as being deaf. Lots of people have milder forms of hearing loss and are simply unaware of the problem and how it’s affecting their lives.

  • Estimated at 50% of over 50s in Ireland.
  • Estimated at 70% of over 70s in Ireland.

Yet only about 40% of people who need hearing aids have them and people who have symptoms of early hearing loss will wait, on average, a decade from onset until they get their hearing tested.

Finding out you’re experiencing hearing loss and receiving treatment can rarely reverse damage, but it can:

  • Make your life easier.
  • Slow down your hearing loss by knowing and addressing the root cause.
  • Help your mental sharpness, as hearing loss can impair the brain’s ability to process sound and recognise speech.
  • Help slow down the onset of dementia, according to recent studies.
