Hearing loss doesn’t discriminate – it can affect any individual at any stage in life. Audiometry, commonly known as hearing testing, is a quick and simple way to monitor hearing – whether that be a screening or a diagnostic exam when a known pathology is present.
Monitoring hearing is important as any level of hearing loss can have a significant impact on an individual's quality of life. It can affect communication, social interactions, and the ability to participate in activities and hobbies. Moreover, hearing loss is connected to increased levels of dementia and loneliness. Early identification and management of hearing loss can help to prevent these negative impacts and maintain an individual's overall quality of life. Both the lives of the individual but not least also for the families and friends around.
