The Association of Independent Hearing Professionals have suggested regular hearing checkups as follows:
18 to 45 years of age: Every five years
45 to 60 years of age: Every three years
Over 60 years of age: Every two years
Hearing loss can be gradual, and you may become accustomed to some degree of hearing loss before it becomes a significant impediment. A regularly scheduled hearing and ear test can detect problems early and get you the treatment you need.
If you experience any of these problems, it may be time to have your hearing checked.
