Who should have a hearing test?

Because hearing loss is age-related everyone over 50 years of age should have their hearing checked.

As we get older, regular hearing tests, like eye tests and dental checks, should become an important part of our healthcare routine. Wear-and-tear on our hearing system means that by the time we are 50 years of age, over one third of us will have some degree of hearing loss. By the time we are 70 nearly three quarters of us will have hearing loss.

Exposure to noise can also cause hearing loss and Tinnitus is often associated with this type loss. If you are working or exposing your ears to noise levels in excess of 80dBA for longer than a few minutes you will be causing irreversible damage to your hearing. Hearing protection should be worn at all times. At Sweeney Optician Eye and Hearing Care we can advise you on the correct type of Hearing protection for each noisy situation.

Many people are not convinced that they have a hearing loss, even though it may have become obvious to their friends and family. 

 QUICK HEARING CHECK

Here are some simple questions that you can complete to discover if you, or a friend of family member, might have hearing loss:

 

·         Do you struggle to hear clearly on the phone?

·         Do  family or friends complain that you have the volume on the television or radio too loud for them?

·         Do you often feel like people are mumbling or speaking too quietly?

·         Do you frequently ask people to repeat themselves?

·         Do you find it hard to hear conversations in restaurants or areas where there is a lot of background noise?

 

If you answer yes to more than one of these questions you may have some degree of hearing loss. It is important that you have it checked out fully. Sweeney Optician Eye and Hearing Care will do this for you free-of-charge. If you require hearing instruments they will suggest a tailored solution for the problem.

Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
