A lot of people pretend they can hear fine

A lot of people pretend they can hear fine

19 March, 2020

Today’s hearing fact isn’t surprising when you think about it. Most hearing loss is subtle and gradual, worsening in tandem with our aging. So it isn’t always obvious, like when your vision starts deteriorating.

Plus, let’s face it, people can get by with mild hearing loss. They just turn the volume up on their TV, ask others to repeat what they said, or try other coping methods. Finally, truth be told, fixing bad eyesight with glasses carries no stigma anymore, whereas wearing hearing aids to hear better might — though it’s definitely getting less and less. Waiting isn’t worth it!

Here’s the question, though — is getting by worth it? Is putting off getting help for hearing worth the hit it takes on our quality of life? Is stubbornness worth missing our favourite sounds, lessening our love for music or movies, or isolating us from the people and activities we enjoy most?
