What Our Patients Say
"I was surprised at the level of hearing services offered at the practice. It really was convenient and makes all the sense in the world to have an annual vision and hearing exam. I was fitted for a hearing aid based upon my needs and my lifestyle and it is hardly noticeable. I can finally hear my husband clearly at the dinner table."
-Katherine M, 2010
Dual Sensory Loss is real. Vision and hearing are vital to the quality of our lives as we grow older.
- Hearing and visual loss begins to affect quality of life in our early 40’s and greatly increases as we enter our early 60’s.
- Early loss of hearing – especially in high frequencies – makes it more difficult to discern noise from conversation. The most common symptoms are the need to turn up the volume, asking comments to be repeated or having difficulty communicating in loud or crowded environments.
- A majority of adults will experience both visual and hearing loss which has been shown to cause withdrawal, depression and a reduced quality of life.
With leading edge technology and innovative, proven techniques in visual restoration, patients have been addressing reduced visual loss much earlier in life to continue enjoying the world they live in. The same now holds true for hearing health. By addressing the signs of reduced hearing early on, hearing loss can often be controlled. By attending to Dual Sensory Loss, you can enjoy the sounds of your lifestyle along with the benefits of optimized vision.
