Protect your hearing

Prolonged exposure to noise exceeding 85 decibels can cause permanent, irreversible hearing damage. One of the best proactive steps you can take to prevent hearing loss is using hearing protection, such as a pair of custom ear molds. These can be used to create earplugs that provide a snug fit and offer superior hearing protection. 

Although hearing loss with age is inevitable, there are some steps you can take to prevent your hearing loss from getting worse. Day to day, you should consider avoiding loud sounds, using ear protection when around loud sounds, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Research has shown that the “use it or lose it” principle applies to our ears. Untreated hearing loss can lead to deteriorated understanding of speech over time. Treating hearing loss early is highly recommended.  

Protect your hearing by wearing hearing protection when around sounds louder than 85 dB for a long period of time. There are different types of hearing protection such as foam earplugs, earmuffs, and custom hearing protection devices.
