October Is National Audiology Awareness Month
Some 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, which occurs as a result of multiple factors including age, disease and heredity. But sometimes hearing loss is caused by completely preventable factors like earwax buildup and excessive noise (from your iPod, etc.). According to the National Institutes of Health, approximately one-third of Americans between the ages of 65 and 75 years suffer from hearing loss, and the number of school-aged children reporting difficulty hearing is on the rise. So, if you find yourself or a loved one saying “Huh?” all to often, it’s time to see us. Call our office at 973-243-8860 to schedule a hearing evaluation.
