Are you finding that you are not hearing people clearly on the phone or if there is a lot of background noise? Dixons Opticians are now working in conjunction with local independent company Sound Advice to offer a hearing care service to our customers in Lincoln and Sleaford.
As we get older, our ability to hear begins to change. This change in hearing is a gradual process and it takes time for people to become aware of the impact it has on their lives and loved ones. It is often the case that someone may struggle to hear certain sounds, but still be able to hear others perfectly well.
Some of these situations will be familiar to someone having difficulty with their hearing.
Other people tend to mumble when speaking
Being told that the television is turned up too loud
Group conversations are difficult to follow
Having to ask people to repeat themselves
Hearing is difficult when there is a lot of background noise, such as on a busy street
Coming to terms with these changes in your hearing can be a daunting experience, but with the correct help and advice, better hearing is something many people can enjoy.
You should look after your hearing the same way that you do your eyes and teeth.
We recommend an annual hearing check for those over 50 and every other years for those under 50.
Our hearing checks are carried out by a qualified hearing aid dispenser and are the best way to find out if there has been any change in your hearing and what steps need to be taken to address these changes. Call the Lincoln or Sleaford branch now to arrange yours today.
