Hummingbird Hearingcare are now offering hearing tests at our clinic based at Robin Hall Opticians in Worsley.
Why have a hearing test?
It’s natural for hearing to decline as we age, most notably once we reach 60 years +, but it is also true that we can suffer with hearing loss due to other factors such as exposure to loud noise, illness, medication, genetics, trauma and wear and tear within the ear.
A lot of people do not want to admit that they have a hearing loss but we assure you that you are not alone. We regularly have our eyes and teeth checked and having a hearing test is just as important.
Hummingbird Hearingcare offer FREE hearing tests in Worsley and offer the best hearing aid brands at the most competitive prices.
Hearing tests - The facts
Statistics show that people wait up to 10 years from first suspecting a hearing loss to actually having their ears tested. This is 10 years too long! The sooner you take action against hearing loss the sooner you stop the negative effects of hearing loss from developing. Research shows treating hearing loss early can prevent more serious problems later in life like cognitive issues and even dementia.
Keeping your hearing healthy helps not just how you hear but how you feel about life and your general well-being. Over time, hearing loss can impair the brain's ability to process sound and recognise speech.
