Did you know… 3.6 million people have some level of hearing loss in Australia?

March 3rd is World Hearing Day

March 3rd marks World Hearing Day, an annual campaign to raise awareness on hearing loss prevention and advocating for better hearing healthcare worldwide.

Local audiologist Ben Hoddinott from The Little Hearing Co advises that World Hearing Day is a great opportunity for Bayside locals to get their hearing checked.

“In Australia, over 3.6 million people have some level of hearing loss.” says Ben (pictured left). “Unfortunately, we know that many people with hearing loss can take years to do something about it. In the meantime their mental health, social participation and work lives can be impacted. It can also have wide reaching impacts on their families and friends. If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing difficulties, there is a wide range of programs and devices which can help.”

Ben adds that World Hearing Day is an important prompt for people to see a specialist and not put up with hearing difficulties.

“Hearing well is such an important part of life, and we don’t want anyone to put off having their test because of the cost. It only takes a few minutes to book a test via our website or by giving our clinic a call.” he says.

Throughout March The Little Hearing Co. are offering up to 50% off their comprehensive hearing assessments, with rebates also available through Medicare with a referral from a doctor.

Ben stresses that prevention is better than a cure and advises limiting exposure to loud noises, using hearing protection (such as ear plugs) and getting your hearing checked annually.
