A customer getting a hearing test at Specsavers Seaford

We have all been there. A noisy room. Lots of people talking at once. So we have to ask the person we are talking to if they will repeat themselves.

If you are worried that you might be suffering from hearing loss, it might be time to make an appointment for a free hearing test at Specsavers Seaford.
