Imagine living a life without hearing? Not hearing that urgent phone call, not being able to be a part of that important conversation, not being able to enjoy that music at a party. There are innumerable things that a person misses out on while one shut down their sense of hearing.
So now you tell me, do you think you will be able to lead a normal life with hearing loss? The answer is definitely no. It is as important to hear as to see, touch, feel and taste. Be it at work, social or business gathering, hearing is important to identify and recognize meaningful conversations and that does make all the difference. Yes, one would indeed manage with body language, lip reading and other cues to compensate for your lost hearing, but it would still not compensate when there are multiple talkers, echoes, other background noise which competes with the actual information. Even talking to your loved ones through the phone seems like a hard task when you have a hearing loss. The result would be that you would start feeling left out from a conversation and eventually feel isolated.
The condition is not rare anymore! Hearing loss is manifested in individuals of all ages, from the elderly population to the working young class. In a world of personal listening devices and noisy work environments, it is quite difficult to ignore the existence of hearing loss. And yes, the aging and weakening system adds to it. But it is perfectly okay! As long as we hear what is important to us. We don’t have to feel isolated at all. The use of hearing aids can solve our problem to a greater extent. Even though it may not be an actual replacement of your ear, it is still the best alternative option available. The hearing aid will support you in hearing what you would have missed normally and thus will help you get back into that important conversation, make you enjoy that music at a party, let you pick that urgent phone call, and talk to your loved ones with ease.
