Easing Ear Issues

Our sense of hearing is important in our daily lives, so imagine always feeling like your ears are plugged up or that you are under water… Pat Parrett knows exactly what that feels like.

Hearing loss affects a third of older Americans and men usually experience greater hearing loss and earlier onset than women.

In fact, the American Academy of Family Physicians points out that the most common type of hearing loss is age-related hearing loss.

Studies have shown that older adults with hearing loss have a greater risk of developing dementia, memory loss and concentration than seniors with normal hearing. 

Ken Johnston talked to us about how the Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery helped him overcome some of the challenges related to his age-related hearing loss.
