Prevent noise-induced hearing loss by turning down the volume today to save your hearing for tomorrow.
You can prevent noise-induced hearing loss by wearing earplugs or earmuffs when exposed to loud activities. “Loud” is defined as more than 85 decibels and includes such noises as a firecracker (150 decibels), an ambulance siren (120 decibels), a rock concert (100 decibels) or a power mower (90 decibels).
Most hearing loss, however, occurs because of aging.
“Have your hearing tested on a regular basis if you are older or frequently exposed to loud noises,” says Scripps otolaryngology expert Thomas Alexander, MD. “It’s the best way to prevent and minimize future loss.”
Age-related hearing loss gradually occurs in most of us as we get older — and whether mild or severe, it can have a profound effect on our quality of life.
