Love Your Hearing
At Florida Eye Specialists & Cataract Institute, we understand the importance of your vision and your hearing, and are proud to offer care and treatment options under one roof (at our Brandon and Sun City Center clinic). Our Hearing Center offers a multitude of hearing services and treatments, with the goal of improving our patients quality of life and helping them LOVE their HEARING!
Much like changes to your vision, being able to hear a full range of sound can decline slowly with age. Hearing loss is degenerative and is best when caught early, which is why we recommend a hearing screening by age 55. Actually, 16% of adults, age 18 and older, report hearing loss, and increases to 33% by age 60.
Additionally, untreated hearing loss can contribute to depression, anxiety, isolation, becoming a fall risk, and 30-40% increased risk of cognitive (including Alzheimer’s and Dementia) decline as well. Hearing and communicating are key ingredients to strong and happy relationships. In fact, people who treat their hearing loss acknowledge a positive effect on their relationships with family and friends.
Hearing loss can be a delicate topic, but when paired with your eye exam, it can be considered an in depth comprehensive check-up. Whether it’s your first hearing screening or a second opinion, let our expertise be there for you.
