It is estimated that one-third of individuals over the age of 65 and more than half of those age 75 and over have some degree of hearing loss. While these statistics probably do not raise any eyebrows, it may come as a surprise that people as young as 20 to 29 may also have noise-induced hearing damage. It may also be unexpected news that about one-quarter of people between the ages of 20 and 69 who report that they have excellent hearing actually have measurable hearing damage. The point is that hearing loss may be more invasive and insidious than most people think. It seems you may be more likely to have hearing loss than not.

We can’t emphasize it enough—protect your hearing! When irreversible damage has been done, however, come see us at The Ear Clinic for a complimentary hearing evaluation. You’ll be amazed at the variety of hearing instruments available today and how they can enhance your hearing, and we’ll advise you which one would be of the most benefit to your individual needs. We will also be glad to show you different kinds of hearing protection devices at 46 Nelson Street W., across from the LCBO. Call 226-909-0966 to “Hear the sounds of your life.”

P.S. According to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO), 360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss.
