Why Is Hearing Test Important?

Hearing Loss Is Often Gradual

Hearing loss can be difficult to identify until it has already impacted your life. That’s why we recommend getting a hearing test once a year, so you’ll know if anything changes and are ready for any adjustments needed before they become irreversible.

Recognizing the signs of hearing loss and acting on them quickly is crucial to maintaining a high quality of life. Unfortunately, you might not notice your own symptoms until it’s too late, so be sure to get tested by an audiologist once a year for peace-of-mind protection against any potential future problems that could develop or worsen in time without intervention.

Approximately 1 in 6 Australians are affected by hearing loss with 3 in 4 over the age of 70 requiring some form of rehabilitation. A regular hearing test can help you identify any issues that may be occurring and help you make informed decisions about your hearing needs.
