Hearing Loss in Children

Hearing loss in children may be more common than you realize. In fact, the Center for Early Intervention on Deafness reports that hearing loss is the number one congenital defect of babies, more than the second and third most common defects/diseases combined. Research shows that hearing-impaired infants who receive early intervention are likely to develop language comparable to their normal-hearing peers.

Our advanced hearing evaluations include play and/or visual reinforcement audiometry, tympanometry, acoustic reflex, otoacoustic emission (OAE), auditory brainstem response (ABR), and central auditory processing (CAP) evaluation.

If the tests determine that your child needs hearing aids to improve his or her hearing, we offer the most state-of-the-art devices in a range of models, styles, sizes, colors, and prices.

Hearing Loss in Adults

According to a survey published in July 2005 by the American Better Hearing Institute, untreated hearing loss accounts for a staggering $100 billion in lost income per year in the US. In a recent study conducted by Clarity(r) (www.clarityproducts.com) and The EAR Foundation, researchers confirmed the prevalence of hearing loss among Baby Boomers, and its negative impact on their lives. Research coming out of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the National Institute on Aging shows that hearing aids are a crucial component to lessening the risks of dementia, falls, hospitalizations, and diminished physical and mental health overall.

We offer audiological services ranging from different hearing services to hearing aids - all to help improve quality of life.

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

For many, hearing loss is either present at birth or a by-product of aging, but for others - approximately 10 millions Americans - irreversible hearing loss is noise-induced and preventable. Particularly for children and teens, some of the simplest ways to acquire noise-induced hearing loss is by listening to loud music, playing with noisy toys, attending concerts and movies, operating lawn mowers and power tools, and riding off-road vehicles and snowmobiles without hearing protection. For adults, those who work in construction and industries with constant loud noises are at the greatest risk of noise-induced hearing loss. As a general rule, noise may damage your hearing if you are at arm's length from it or have to shout to make yourself heard over it.
