People can't see hearing loss
No matter what degree of hearing loss you experience, it can significantly impact your ability to be a part of your world and the activities you enjoy doing. Most people can't tell you have a hearing loss just by looking at you, which can create challenging situations, particularly in busy or noisy environments.
Losing Your Senses
A loss of hearing may make it seem that others are mumbling or may result in you becoming frustrated. In fact, understanding of speech occurs in your brain, not your ears. If the information your brain is receiving is distorted by a loss of hearing, then it’s like reading a book that is missing every other page. You may be able to guess what is missing but most of the time you are going to guess incorrectly.
It took decades for your brain to learn the meaning of sounds presented through normal hearing ears. Now, with a decrease in your hearing, your brain must translate distorted information into meaningful sound. Fortunately, current hearing aid technology is now available to resolve your hearing problems.

Understanding the value and impact of good hearing to your lifestyle is essential to the process of deciding the right style and hearing aid technology for you.
