Should I Get My Hearing Tested in My 50s?

by | Jul 10, 2024 | Hearing Loss

Did you know that almost 38 million American adults report some trouble hearing? 

If you’re reading this and have noticed some struggles with your hearing recently, you’re not alone. No matter your age range, hearing loss is not only normal but is also becoming much more commonplace as the world around us continues to get louder. 

No two pairs of ears are the same – and no treatment for hearing loss is the same either. What works for someone over the age of 70 may not be what an individual who just turned 50 may need. 

Personalized hearing care is available for any age. Even people as young as 50 have reported some hearing loss challenges, and they’re quickest to recommend getting treatment sooner rather than later. 

How Can Hearing Care Help Me? 

When an individual first realizes a hearing loss challenge, many will wait to address it until it starts to affect their day-to-day life on a more major scale; this could take up to seven years before they finally seek out treatment for their ears. 

Imagine it: Seven years of missed jokes with your friends, missing snippets of conversations at the dinner table, and even unintentionally ignoring important noises while you’re driving to and from work. That’s before we even get into how untreated hearing loss can adversely affect other areas of your health, too. 

We see getting your hearing tested as a major boon to your overall well-being. Even getting a baseline of what your current hearing is like can help you in the future to see how it changes over time. 

Our team knows many people that have come in to see us for a hearing test—whether they’re over or under the age of 50—feeling apprehensive or nervous about whether hearing care is the right choice for their needs. 

We make sure that they leave our office feeling confident and reassured that they made the right decision in seeking help for their hearing loss challenge. 

Plenty of individuals see the benefits of professional hearing care after the age of 50. We highly recommend getting your hearing assessed not just for your ears but to also help us understand your holistic health, as many other health conditions come with hearing loss as a package deal. 

Safeguard your golden years with hearing care – your ears, and your body, will thank you for it!
