As one of the five senses, hearing is a major player in physical, emotional, and personal well-being.

Hearing loss affects 500 million people worldwide under the age of 65 and nearly two-thirds of individuals ages 65 or older.

Surprisingly, given the widespread effects of hearing loss, millions of people let it go untreated for years before they look for treatment. Research has linked untreated hearing loss to a myriad of health problems including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hospitalization
  • Dementia
