Free Initial Consultations
Going through life without being able to hear with clarity can be frustrating and even isolating. If you have been diagnosed with hearing loss, the first step is to have your hearing assessed by an experienced Monterey audiologist. Once you have taken steps towards improving your hearing, it is important that you educate yourself about how to protect yourself and prevent future hearing loss.

In order to understand hearing loss and treatment methods, you should first understand what decibels (dB) are. Decibels measure the intensity or volume of sound from the faintest level you can hear to 180dB. Experts in the field of audiology say that you should not exposure yourself to sounds higher than 85dB without at least having proper ear protection. Additionally, we recommend against using cotton swabs for ear cleaning.
Hearing loss can happen over a period of years, slowly and gradually without a person even realizing it. You may get used to raising the volume on your stereo or TV and asking your friends to repeat themselves. However, the sooner you speak to a Monterey audiologist about treatment or hearing aids, the better. The longer you strain your ears without seeking treatment, the more damage can be done.
