Hearing Loss

We believe that everyone in our community over the age of 55 should have their hearing screened annually as part of their personal wellness program.
To assess your hearing needs, please take our Free Online Hearing Assessment.

Q: What causes hearing loss?

A: Many factors contribute to hearing loss. Some causes are preventable, such as noise-induced hearing loss from listening to loud music or working in a loud environment, like a factory, without hearing protection.

Others are less preventable such as:

  • Heredity
  • Illness
  • Reactions to medications
  • Injury

Q: Do I have hearing loss?

A: Want to know if you have any of the most common signs of hearing loss?

Take the short quiz below:

  • Do people comment that the volume on your TV or radio is too loud?
  • Have you missed visits and calls because you didn’t hear the doorbell or telephone?
  • Do you have trouble following conversations in crowded, noisy places?
  • Do people say you speak too loudly?
At Lawrence Hearing, a New York State licensed Hearing Instrument Specialist will conduct a FREE, short and painless screening to measure your ability to hear sounds at various frequencies (pitches) and look for possible physical causes of hearing loss. Based on the test results, a specific solution best suiting your hearing loss and your lifestyle will be recommended.
