Loud Noise Exposure

Sudden and violent exposure to loud noise doesn't guarantee hearing damage, but wearing proper hearing protection in all loud environments is essential. Long-term exposure to less traumatic noise, such as construction work, live music, and daily traffic, can also contribute to noise-induced hearing loss. If you’ve been exposed to loud sounds, some of the signs you experience may include difficulty hearing:

High Pitched Sounds

Others in Crowded Areas

TV Volume turned too loud

Muffled Speech Sounds

Muffled Speech & Sounds

One of the earliest signs and symptoms of hearing loss is in daily conversations with friends and family. If you have difficulty understanding others when they're speaking or find yourself asking people to repeat themselves often, it’s time to schedule a comprehensive hearing evaluation. In more extreme cases, people might miss phone notifications or alarm clocks.

Constant Ear Ringing

Tinnitus is when you hear ringing or other noise in one or both of your ears when no external sound is present, whether it’s something you experience intermittently or constantly. Several factors can cause it, and, in some cases, it may be the precursor to hearing loss or another serious condition. Some of the early signs of tinnitus include:

  • Hearing buzzing, swishing, or ringing
  • Trouble sleeping due to ear ringing
  • Hearing a pulse or heartbeat (pulsatile tinnitus)

Amplify Your Sound

Many different things can cause hearing loss, but the warning signs that you may be suffering from it are almost always the same. Our hearing experts recommend scheduling regular hearing exams so you can catch the symptoms early. When you schedule a comprehensive evaluation, we’ll determine your level of hearing and match you with the right solutions, be it a hearing loss treatment plan or hearing protection to ensure you can continue to enjoy the sounds of life.

You may be at risk of hearing loss if you participate in the following without hearing protection:

  • Hunting or target shooting
  • Work in a noisy environment
  • Perform or attend live music shows
  • Use farm or construction equipment
  • Prolonged exposure to loud engines or motorcycles
