HEARING loss is about much more than a reduced ability to perceive sound.
Whether the loss is gradual or sudden, many people with hearing problems start disconnecting from the world around them.
Often, people with hearing loss withdraw from their social lives being too embarrassed to ask family and friends to repeat themselves over and over again. They might be afraid they misunderstand a conversation and answer with wrong or embarrassing comments.

You might be suffering from hearing loss and in many cases it happens so gradually, you might not even be aware of it. One of the first signs that your hearing might be deteriorating is difficulty to understand speech in noise. There is hope.

The Ear Institute has been treating people with hearing loss for over 40-years. With 22 Ear Institutes across South Africa and Namibia, access to world-class hearing is within everyone’s reach.

The Ear Institute offers world-class hearing care for your family and makes a visit to their facilities hassle-free. From easy access, safe and free parking to a free cup of Nespresso coffee, every appointment is a pleasurable and hassle-free experience. Cleaning services are done in-house for patients not to be inconvenienced by being without their hearing aids.

Ear Institute provides world-class facilities but their focus remains on hearing care for people. Client service, after-sales service, receptionists, professionals and audiologist receive regular training to ensure that they have the latest information and the patients’ needs at heart. In addition, the Ear Institute offers a 30-day money back guarantee - you only pay if your hearing improves and you are completely satisfied.

September is deaf awareness month; we would like to offer you a free hearing screening. Present this article at any Ear Institute during September to qualify. Enjoy life to the fullest again.
