Hearing Test Statistics
According to a Consumer Reports survey, about 30 percent of the population have not received a hearing test for over a decade, or they have never been tested. Hearing tests are not only simple, but most of the time they are also free.
Hearing is just one of five senses, and it is an essential function for our quality of life. We rely on hearing to enjoy things like music, our favorite TV shows, and movies, or conversations with family and friends.
We now know that hearing is very important to remain connected to others on a social or work-related basis, to be properly informed, and to have a feeling of security in these uncertain times.
Hearing loss that goes untreated can lead to a higher risk of falls, social isolation, depression, dementia, and hospitalizations.
Experts recommend adults should get their hearing tested for each decade through the age of 50, and then get tested every year after turning 50 years old. The minimum time frame is getting tested every three years, or whenever you notice any changes in your ability to hear.
