Dual Sensory Loss
Precious Sights & Sounds Matter.
We see most people get in the healthy habit of taking care of their vision because that is what they did growing up or reading smaller text becomes consistently frustrating. By comparison, far too few proactively get sound advice on integral hearing care. Just as 20/20 vision is a worthy focus on, so is personalized fitting of advanced hearing aids which deliver daily soundtracks that are music to our ears.
By seeing and hearing better, especially with social distancing and facial masking, you will be dually empowered to more safely and happily experience an improved quality of life.
Did you know reputable research indicates identifying and targeting dual sensory impairment in older adults could be a potentially useful strategy for preventing a decline in their life expectancy and it is important that professionals working in both vision and hearing services are able to recognize this condition to tailor rehabilitation solutions accordingly?
As you see your Ophthalmologist or Optometrist for annual diagnostic screenings, please know it is essential that you and your loved ones get professional hearing evaluations at least once a year. At home, work and play, seeing and hearing your best just makes sense.
