In a world filled with various sounds, our ability to hear is a precious gift that we should take care of. Just like we visit the dentist, doctor, and eye doctor for check-ups, it’s important to remember to get our hearing checked regularly, which we might sometimes forget.
Surprisingly, around 45% of people over 50 in the UK experience some level of hearing loss. This hearing loss often happens slowly and can be hard to notice. It can also be a safety concern because you might not hear important sounds. The good news is that there are many devices and solutions that can help improve your hearing.
Do we undervalue our ability to hear, or is there a stigma about addressing hearing problems? Finding hearing loss early is important because it means we can get help to make sure we don’t miss out on the richness of conversations and sounds in life.
In Rayleigh, at our special hearing clinic, we provide a complete hearing check-up. Our detailed assessment includes looking inside your ears, checking how well you hear speech in different settings, asking about your lifestyle, going through your medical history, and reviewing any symptoms you might have. We’ll also have a deep conversation about what we find and even let you try out hearing aids. This personal appointment is tailored to meet your specific needs and can last up to 90 minutes.
If you choose to get a hearing aid from us, the cost of the assessment will be subtracted from the total price of the hearing aid. The total charge for this thorough hearing check-up is £85.
