How Important Is Hearing?

Hearing is unquestionably one of our most important senses. But people often forget just how important it truly is, and have a difficult time imagining their lives without it. The American political activist and author Helen Keller was born both blind and deaf. She was in the rare position of being able to compare the loss of both senses when it came to her own experiences.
She wrote:

“The problems of deafness are deeper and more complex, if not more important, than those of blindness. Deafness is a much worse misfortune. For it means the loss of the most vital stimulus-the sound of the voice that brings language, sets thoughts astir and keeps us in the intellectual company of man.”

Hearing loss and its treatment is critically important to not only the development of children, but also the management of the lives of adults. Through the medical field of audiology, medical professionals are rigorously trained in the evaluation and treatment of those with hearing loss. An audiologist will initially conduct a wide range of tests in order to determine the exact nature of an individual’s hearing problem. Then, they’ll present appropriate treatment options, such as hearing aids, rehabilitation training, and balance tests to evaluate dizziness. An audiologist will typically reper patients to a physician if the problem requires a medical or surgical solution.
