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.

Do you or a loved one suffer from hearing loss?

Join Dr. Alexander and Scripps audiologist Samantha Barbour, AuD, to learn about the latest advancements in treating this debilitating condition, including cochlear implants, BAHA implants, traditional and implantable hearing aids, and other options that will be music to your ears.
