The Benefits of Treating Hearing Loss

Treating hearing loss with a good set of hearing aids has countless benefits that more and more people are discovering! As more knowledge spreads about the prevalence of hearing loss and the problems associated with it, treating hearing loss is becoming as routine as treating near-sightedness. We are finally seeing the erosion of the stigma associated with hearing loss, and more people are enhancing their quality of life by seeking treatment for their hearing loss early.

Better Communication

Hearing loss can have an isolating effect, but we can avoid this by getting hearing aids as soon as they are recommended by a hearing care professional. Mild hearing loss makes it more difficult to hear in larger groups and when background noise is present. By getting hearing aids at this stage—even though we might still be able to hear one other person in a quiet environment with an unaided ear—we can maintain our lines of communication with coworkers, friends, and loved ones in all kinds of situations. That translates to an improved quality of life!

Better Relationships

Our intimacy with friends and loved ones is reliant on our ability to communicate. When we can’t hear, we tend to talk less even with those we’re closest to. Hearing loss has a tendency to whittle our conversation down to only the bare necessities. When we can hear clearly, we restore all of the normal banter that occurs between us in the course of a day. We might think of this conversation as inessential, but it really is the “little things” that make us feel loved and connected to those around us!

Richer Social Life

Even mild hearing loss is exhausting. Trying to keep up with a conversation when we can’t hear clearly involves lots of guesswork, and putting sentences together with context clues. That stresses the parts of our brain that are usually responsible for more creative and imaginative thinking. It wears us out, and makes the process of conversing a lot less fun! Consequently, we get tired earlier and don’t spend as long in the company of those we care about.


Many people who are new to age-related hearing loss might mistake this fatigue for a separate age-related condition— “I can’t stay out as late as I used to.” By treating our hearing loss with hearing aids, we can more easily stay present in the moment and enjoy time with the people in our lives as we always have.

Better Wages

When we can hear and communicate effectively, we’re more valuable members of our workplace organization. Accordingly, we see the wages of those with untreated hearing loss failing to keep up with those who wear hearing aids, over time. The greater the hearing loss, the lower the wages are, comparatively.

More Positive Outlook

Those who wear hearing aids tend to feel more optimistic about their lives than people with untreated hearing loss. It makes sense, doesn’t it? When you’ve lost the ability to hear, an upcoming event might just seem like another opportunity to feel left out and left behind. When you can rely on your ability to understand what people are saying, you can look forward to the times you meet up with friends and family as a chance to connect and enjoy one another’s company.

Hearing aids not only increase our sense of optimism about our own lives but may also help us to be more optimistic about the world in general! While it is not obvious whether this is correlation or causation, it is definitely true that hearing aids help us keep in touch with the young people in our lives, and give us the opportunity to become excited when we hear about what they’re thinking and doing with their lives!

More Physically Active

Those who wear hearing aids tend to get more exercise than those with untreated hearing loss. This is likely because hearing loss can make us feel unsafe! And in fact, those with untreated hearing loss do tend to suffer accidental injury more often than those with normal hearing or hearing aids. Even if they do not suffer injury, simply having hearing loss makes us feel less aware of our surroundings, and thus more fearful. When we start wearing hearing aids, we can understand our surroundings once more. Taking a walk or spending time outdoors becomes an enjoyable activity that also contributes to better physical and mental well-being!
