Get Your Hearing Checked


The Benefits

Hearing problems can get worse if they are not treated. That is why it’s important to get your hearing checked. Once you know you have a problem, you can take steps to deal with it.

There are many products that can help with hearing loss:

  • Hearing aids you wear in or behind your ear
  • Special phones that make sounds louder
  • TVs with closed captioning
  • Flashing lights to let you know when an alarm or doorbell is ringing

If you think you have a hearing loss, start by seeing a doctor. Find out what treatment choices are right for you. Hearing better is worth the effort.
