Of the thirty-six million Americans with hearing loss, ten million can be attributed to noise-induced hearing loss. One in six teenagers suffers permanent hearing loss due to loud sounds. Noise-induced hearing loss is preventable, one of our goals at Hearing Health Clinic is educating our community about hearing protection.
You can prevent hearing loss by:
- Moving away from loud sounds
- Turning down movies, music, or other sounds
- Wearing ear plugs
There are endless ear plug options available now, ranging from foam to custom made plugs specialized for specific situations (e.g., motorsports, hunting, concerts, musicians, dentists, snoring, industrial noise). Stop in our office to explore our hearing protection display, test how loud your earphones are, and find out what ear plug options are best for you and your family!
