Annual Check-up? Don’t Forget Your Hearing Mill Neck Services Center for Hearing Health Can Help Eye exams are often part of an annual medical check-up, but rarely do we “hear” people mention having a hearing evaluation done. Mill Neck Services Center for Hearing Health would like to remind you of the importance of having a hearing assessment done on a yearly basis. Just as establishing baselines for other types of health screenings are beneficial for assessing your overall health at a given time, checking your ears helps in evaluating hearing changes that may occur over time. While everyone should have their hearing tested, it is especially valuable for someone with a known hearing loss, as continual monitoring helps identify whether or not the loss is progressing. Appropriate treatment can then be implemented sooner, rather than later. Children with a history of middle ear pathology (i.e., frequent ear infections) should have their hearing checked on a regular basis. Ideally, every child should have a baseline audiogram. For those who use amplification, the end of summer is a good time to have hearing aids cleaned of any debris or moisture that may have accumulated over the warmer weather months. In addition, tubes may be dry and susceptible to cracks and may need replacing. Bottom line? Having your hearing tested makes for good aural hygiene and optimum hearing health. Remember, your ears are important contributors to your overall well-being.
