The World is Full of Sounds You Don’t Want to Miss
More than 48 million Americans have some sort of hearing loss, according to Johns Hopkins University, including one in six babyboomers and two-thirds of people over 70 years of age.
Certain conditions, including age, illess, and genetics, may play a role in hearing loss. Added to this list are a host of other modern day ear-damaging elements such as some medications, loud, ongoing noise, listening to music using earbuds, ear infections, and simple ear wax buildup.
Hearing loss is a well understood medical condition that has many tried-and-true treatment options. Finding the treatment most suited to your individual symptoms is a joint venture between you and your hearing care professional.
Advanced Instruments Hearing Aid Service, located on Tennessee Street in Vallejo, is dedicated to ensuring that everything will be done to protect your ability to hear.
Bonny Kuhfal, HIS, has worked as a hearing instrument specialist since 2003, and recently ‘took a leap of faith’ and purchased the Vallejo office of Advanced Instruments Hearing Aid Service. She strives daily to enhance her patients’ quality of life by performing hearing tests and explaining the results thoroughly, listening to her patients’s stories, educating them on their options, and fitting them with hearing aids that will help them live full and active lives. Service and repairs are also a part of the service.
Most modern hearing aids use Bluetooth technology to connect directly to a smartphone, allowing personalization through an app, where you can control, fine tune, switch programs, or adjust the volume of your hearing aids quickly and discretely. You can also stream audio from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® Touch directly into your hearing aids. Imagine being able to hear a phone call clearly!
Do people seem to mumble, or do you miss key words in a conversation? Do you need people to repeat themselves? Do you need to turn up the volume on the TV? Don’t take your hearing for granted. Call Bonny at Advanced Instruments Hearing Aid Service and make an appointment for an assessment that could change your life.
