You may be wondering if your hearing has changed. Perhaps now is not a good time to get a full assessment, so you’re looking for an online hearing test. This self-screening test is only intended to provide you with a “first impression” of your hearing ability. Screening tests are not comprehensive diagnostic tests like those offered by Advanced Audiology and are not intended to take their place. If your test results show signs of a hearing loss or if you suspect a change in your hearing, please contact Advanced Audiology for a complete consultation.
Untreated Hearing Loss Can Interfere with Quality of Life
Almost 35 million people in the U.S. know they can’t hear as well as they once did. Yet half of them have never had their hearing professionally tested. The truth is, untreated hearing loss interferes with virtually every aspect of a person’s life – both personally and professionally. When ignored and left unaddressed, hearing loss can lead to impaired memory, difficulty in learning new tasks, reduced alertness, increased risk to personal safety, irritability, depression, withdrawal, and diminished psychological and overall health. Simply, when you choose to ignore your hearing loss, you are choosing a dramatic loss in your quality of life. For the vast majority of people, it is not a conscious choice.
With this online hearing test, you can take a first step towards determining if you need a professional hearing evaluation and perhaps a hearing aid to correct hearing deficiencies.
