How do I know if I need hearing aids?

answer

Answer:

Often, difficulty hearing stems from excess ear wax , an infection, or a physical irregularity, such as a perforated ear drum. These issues can be corrected medically, without the need for hearing aids.

However, everyone over age 50 should have a baseline hearing screening. A proper hearing exam uses sounds, tones and speech to test your hearing. It must be performed in the right environment and analyzed correctly. Your results, which are plotted on an audiogram, will indicate whether or not you are a candidate for hearing aids.
