Your Hearing

We believe that every person should benefit from the best hearing possible.

Your sense of hearing helps connect you to the world…a loved one’s voice…birds singing…the wind blowing. Your hearing allows all of these sounds and more to communicate messages to your brain.

Hearing loss has many causes, symptoms and effects if left untreated. In fact, millions of Americans of all ages suffer unnecessarily from untreated hearing loss. By simply being on this page, you have made the critical first step to gather information for yourself or a loved one to begin the process of understanding the effects and treatments of hearing loss.

Below is a Starkey PDF guide to help you in the process of determining if sounds are being missed and what can be done to reconnect to those sounds.

Tinnitus

What You Should Know About Tinnitus

Do you or someone you know suffer from constant “ringing in the ears?”

Maybe it’s not ringing exactly. Some people describe it as hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring and even chirping. Whatever noise it is, the real issue is something called tinnitus.

Tinnitus (“TIN-a-tus” or “Tin-EYE-tus”) is the medical term for the sensation of hearing sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present.

The important thing to know is that tinnitus is not a condition or a disease. Instead, it’s a symptom – typically of something bigger, like an ear infection, high blood pressure or, most common, hearing loss. It’s also important to know that everyone’s tinnitus is different, which is why finding relief has been so elusive – until now!

Quick Tinnitus Facts

  • Some 50 million American adults suffer from tinnitus (1 in 5)
  • Tinnitus is the #1 disability for military veterans
  • Tinnitus can occur at any age, and may begin suddenly or progress gradually

The Most Common Causes Of Tinnitus Are

  • Head injury
  • Side effects from medication
  • Noise exposure (e.g., from shooting or machines at work)
