About Hearing Loss
Nearly 40 million Americans have hearing loss. Most frequently, it is due to repeated exposure to loud noises—at concerts, nightclubs, crowded restaurants, loud workplaces, and sporting events like baseball and football games. What few people realize, though, is how easy it is to get a hearing test by a licensed hearing care professional. And it’s free at Luna Family Hearing! If it turns out that hearing aids are needed, today’s hearing aid technology allows wearers to hear from all directions, in all sorts of sound environments, and even underwater. The hearing aids are digital, wireless, and can even connect directly to your smartphone or television.
