Hearing Institute of Ontario Celebrates March 3rd, World Hearing Day

In 2007, the World Health Organization designated March 3rd as World Hearing Health Day in order to raise awareness to the growing numbers of those suffering from hearing loss and the importance of hearing health care.
 
The Hearing Institute of Ontario is focused on educating the public on hearing loss, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. This growing health problem is often unrecognized in adults, adolescents and children and it leads to a long list of problems including depression, isolation, academic delays, impaired communication and cognitive decline. We are grateful that this awareness day was created to shine a light on the significance of hearing loss.
 
The Audiologists at Hearing Institute of Ontario are the experts in hearing health.  Anyone suspecting a hearing issue should see an audiologist who will run a series of tests to determine the problem, if there is one, and will then recommend treatment.
 
Some signs of hearing loss may include:
 
  • Suddenly having to turn up the volume of the television, radio, or stereo and having other family members complain that the volume is too loud.
  • Difficulty understanding people speaking to you and asking people to repeat themselves.
  • Difficulty with phone conversations and understanding the other person.
  • Sudden inability to hear the doorbell, the dog barking, and other household sounds.
  • People telling you that you speak too loudly.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • School-aged children with hearing loss will sometimes exhibit poor school performance because they can’t understand the teacher assignments or classroom interactions. If hearing loss has been present from a young age, they often don’t recognize the loss and can’t identify the problem.
 
Hearing Institute of Ontario is a full-service audiology clinic.  We offer state-of-the-art hearing evaluations and a wide selection of hearing aids and hearing aid accessories, including assistive listening devices.  If you or a loved one has concerns about your hearing, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 1-888-664-2999.
