As a man in his forties who has lost his hearing to a considerable extent, I can tell you it is no joke. It is frustrating to ask constantly for people to speak louder or for them to shout things so that you can get a clear idea of what it is that they are actually saying.
So when I was suggested an audiometry test in Sydney’s Hearing Aids’ Professionals, I thought let’s get this done. I mean things could hardly get any worse.
The Assistive Hearing Devices are a real steal!
Among the range of technology equipped in treating hearing problems, are the magnificent and versatile assistive hearing devices. These are a boon for anyone looking to get the most out of a technologically driven piece of equipment.
Whether you choose the amplified telephone or notifications system or even venture into the range of amplified alarm clocks, these devices are a sure help in the struggle you face trying to hear.
The aim: eliminate background noise while delivering an excellent speech to you.
I was in for a shock when I took the Audiometry Test in Sydney
To my dismay, when I took the test at the Hearing Aids’ Professionals in Sydney, I learned that if I had just come in earlier and had it checked, it would be easier to have the treatment done.
The blockage in my middle ear had just gotten worse over time and maybe, just maybe if I had consulted the professionals earlier it would have helped tremendously.
The Hearing Assessment Test helped
It indicated the conduction issue that was in play. As you know sound travels through the inner ear, through the middle ear and then in the inner ear there is a mechanism that operates and that is how you perceive sound.
In my case, the middle ear was the problem. They had to drain the fluid that had collected but because of my procrastination, the blockage was a tad bit worse.
They managed to restore my hearing to a certain extent. But well, since it had collected over time, there was only so much they could do.
This is my appeal to everyone who feels they are losing their sense of hearing
Time will not wait for you. You need to be proactive and have something done. The earlier you seek help, the more damage control possible.
A special mention for the audiometrists who never stop trying to help or provide services in any way possible.
Whether you ask for a test, or are fitted with a hearing aid and need a follow-up or simply are looking for counseling regarding hearing issues, the audiometrists are in control. Thanks, guys for the assistance!
