Hearing Screenings

HEARING SCREENING

Hearing loss can affect you at any stage in your life, from early infancy to later adulthood. Since hearing loss develops gradually, you might not know you have a condition until the damage has become quite severe. Consequently, you'll need regular screenings to ensure your hearing hasn't suffered.
 
At Pacific Hearing Care, we detect problems early so you can enjoy your hearing for as long as possible. When you come to us fora hearing screening in Honolulu, HI, we'll evaluate whether or not you have suffered hearing loss and present ways to make the most of your remaining hearing. 

Why Come in for a Screening?


Statistics estimate that nearly 20 percent of adults experience some degree of hearing loss. But this statistic increases dramatically by age 65, where 1 out of 3 people suffer from hearing loss. This increase occurs because your inner ear and its natural blood flow change over time, and the deterioration of the tiny hairs in your ear alters the way your brain processes sound.

We recommend that you come in for a hearing screening in Honolulu, HI at least every 10 years until you turn 50, and then every 3 years afterward. This schedule lets us detect subtle changes in your hearing so we can alert you of any problems.
