It is no secret that hearing loss is common because we deal with it every day at our practice. We also know that it becomes even more common the older we get. Currently more than 1.5 billion people, which is nearly 20% of the global population live with hearing loss. 430 million of them have disabling hearing loss. It is expected that by 2050, there could be over 700 million people with disabling hearing loss.

You are not alone when it comes to hearing loss

If you have hearing loss, you are definitely not alone. More good news is that for most people, hearing loss is treatable and doesn’t have to make life less enjoyable or prevent you from missing out. Today’s hearing aids which are programmed and fit by an experienced hearing care professional such as us at Strauss Audiology, are designed to make hearing effortless again.

Even better, hearing aids can also help wearers stay connected, keep physically and socially active, and maintain their independence thanks to sensors and apps that can count steps, measure social engagement, detect falls, stream phone calls and much, much more. You do not have to give up on your independence any time soon!

Hearing loss is common

You really do not have to feel alone, not only is hearing loss more common than you think, but wearing hearing aids, too. Millions of people wear hearing aids every day and are very pleased about how great they sound and how quality of life has increased.

The other big perk about today’s range of hearing aids is, they are so small and discreet, it almost goes unnoticed. It is the in thing nowadays to have something in your ear and we do not mean earrings.

If you’re one of the many millions with hearing loss and are tired that it affects your life, we can help. Simply book a consultation with our owner audiologist, Sybrand Strauss, and let him do a full hearing test for you. You will feel at ease and walk out of his practice with knowledge, confidence and peace of mind.
