Are you struggling to hear?

Hearing care by Allegro Optical OpticiansDoes everyone seem to be mumbling these days? That’s unlikely, the more likely explanation is that your hearing isn’t what it was. It’s also likely that this problem has been around awhile. Perhaps you complain about that same mumble while watching TV.

Age-related hearing loss is often first noticed in noisy environments such as parties. Many people talking at once and with music is playing as well, you struggle to hear. The first step is to learn more about age-related hearing loss and what you can do about it.

Just as Prebyopia is long-sightedness caused by the ageing eye, Presbycusis or age-related hearing loss is a condition often associated with ageing. It affects people between the ages of 65 and 74, although it starts much younger. Quite simply it is the cause by natural wear and tear on the nerve cells in the ears.

Many of our musical clients admit they have problems with their hearing. After years of exposure to loud music they now suffer from hearing loss. It can happen to many musicians including  Pete Townsend from the Who or Roger Taylor from Queen. So If you are a musician, don’t worry, help is available.
