Currently it is estimated 31 million Americans suffer from hearing loss and communication difficulties. Hearing loss can have a profound impact on an individual’s emotional, physical and social well –being . People with hearing loss are more likely to report symptoms of depression, dissatisfaction with life, reduced functional hearing and withdrawal from social activities.

Symptoms of hearing loss may include:

  • Muffled hearing
  • Difficulty understanding what people are saying, especially when there are competing voices or background noise. You may be able to hear someone speaking, but you cannot distinguish the specific words
  • Listening to the television or radio at higher volume than in the past
  • Avoiding conversation and social interaction. Social situations can be tiring and stressful if you do not hear well. You may begin to avoid those situations as hearing becomes more difficult
  • Depression. Many adults may be depressed because of how hearing loss is affecting their social life

The Audiology center of Dallas at White Rock ENT offers comprehensive audiologic assessment and rehabilitation services that include: the latest digital amplification (hearing aids) and assistive communication devices (FM/Bluetooth systems). Custom earmolds, including swim plugs (to keep moisture from entering the ear canal), and custom fit hearing protection (to help reduce damage when in a noisy environment)
