What Causes Hearing Loss
Approximately 90% of people who experience hearing loss have damage to the cochlea, which is small structure located in the inner ear. Hearing loss can be caused by many things, including prolonged exposure to loud noise, old age, genetics, illness, and trauma.
Why People Don’t Wear Hearing Aids
According to a 2006 study by Duke University, only one in five people whose hearing could be improved by a hearing aid uses one. Some people don’t want to wear them because they are embarrassed for people to know they have hearing problems. In actuality, many of the new hearing aids are so small it is difficult to see them. Another reason people may not want to get a hearing aid is because they are concerned about the cost. Hearing aids are becoming more and more affordable every year, however. People suffering from hearing loss who are concerned that a hearing aid many be too expensive should consult with the professionals at Metro Hearing. A professional can offer the most effective hearing aid options for their budget.
People with hearing loss do not have to live in a world without sound. The affordable hearing aids in Phoenix available at Metro Hearing can provide much-needed relief.
