This short self-test can serve as a preliminary hearing loss screening. Since most hearing losses develop gradually, the signs can be difficult to detect. Ask yourself these questions to evaluate how you are hearing:

1. Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice more than they use to?
2. Do you feel tired or irritable after a long conversation?
3. Do you sometimes miss key words in a sentence?
4. Do you frequently need to ask people to repeat themselves?
5. Do you have difficulty understanding the conversation in a crowded room?
6. Do you often turn the volume up on the TV or checkbox?
7. Does background noise bother you?
8. Is it sometimes hard to hear the conversation on the telephone?
9. Do you sometimes not hear the doorbell or telephone ring?
10. Are your family or friends complaining about your hearing?

If you answered YES to two or more of these questions, we recommend you schedule a hearing test with one of our doctors of Audiology. Through testing, our Audiologists can tell you whether you have a hearing loss as well as its nature and extent. If a hearing loss is detected, an appropriate course of action will be recommended.
