Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
For a limited time, the audiologists at Virginia Hearing Consultants are offering complimentary hearing screenings. A decrease in hearing ability affects each person differently therefore the only way to discover whether an individual has hearing loss is to visit a hearing professional for a complete screening. Virginia Hearing Consultants is pleased to offer Norfolk, Virginia area residents a free screening as the first step to achieving better hearing. The screening includes a consultation with an audiologist to review results and discuss treatment options (if appropriate), but carries no obligation.
Untreated hearing loss has been linked to many other emotional, physical, mental and psychological problems. It has also been shown to create economic disadvantages for working-age people who don't address their reduced hearing ability. One of the most common myths about hearing loss is that only old people suffer from it. The truth is that 2/3 of people with hearing loss are under the age of 65 and likely still in the workforce. There are many causes of hearing loss and not all hearing loss can be corrected through the use of hearing aids or alternative listening devices. A professional evaluation is required to determine the cause, severity and treatment options available to each person.
