It is an unfortunate reality that only approximately one in five people who could benefit from a hearing instrument actually use one.
The other four reject using a hearing instrument for any number of reasons, perhaps the most common of which is the perception that it will “make them look older.” The fact is that nothing makes a person with impaired hearing look older than constantly having to ask people to repeat what they just said. On the other hand, not only can today’s technically advanced hearing instruments dramatically improve users’ ability to hear and understand conversation, they are scarcely noticeable. The vast majority of our clients are happily surprised when we show them the variety and styles available in today’s market.
Keeping that in mind, we must not be ashamed to wear a hearing instrument. They help all age groups to hear, just like glasses help them see.
