Understanding hearing loss

Hearing Care is Health Care™

These days, if you're like most Americans, you invest time and effort in the important task of taking care of your health. You go to the dentist. You see the eye doctor. And of course, your regular physician. But generally, many people forget one thing – taking care of their hearing health.

According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), about 15% of American adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing. Hearing loss cuts across age, gender, economic status and location. Yet only 16% of adults (20 to 69) with hearing loss who could benefit from hearing aids actually use them.
