At Thousand Islands Hearing in Brockville, Prescott, and Iroquois we know that recognizing physical, behavioural and emotional signs and symptoms of hearing loss is essential in getting the treatment you need, and improving your quality of life.
If you think you may have hearing loss after reading through the signs above, the next step is to confirm your suspicions, or put them to rest!
Chances are that if you have hearing loss, your friends and family members have noticed. Even if they aren't aware that hearing loss is the problem, they will likely have noticed that something is amiss.
Ask your family and friends if they have noticed that you seem more distant, distracted or even annoyed in conversation than you once were.
Ask them if they ever find that you don't seem to hear or understand when they say things to you. If they say yes to any of these questions, it may be a sign that hearing loss is affecting your relationships, and that you should be tested!
The only way to get a positive diagnosis for hearing loss is to be assessed by a specialist. The Hearing Instrument Practitioners at Thousand Islands Hearing will perform a hearing test to determine if you are experiencing hearing loss, and if so, the type of hearing loss you are experiencing, and its degree.
