Looking after your hearing
Every Friday the team at Cookstown Specsavers are raising awareness of hearcare and the many services on offer in store. Wearing special ‘hear here’ T shirts, the team are talking to customers and offering advice on how to protect against hearing loss and damage.
Hearing loss impact
Hearing loss can affect every aspect of your life and people who suffer hearing loss often say they feel isolated from the world around them.
Store director, Natalie Bradley said: ‘Specsavers is well known for its optical care but we also have an extensive hearcare service and offer audiology clinics every Friday here in Cookstown.
'Hearing loss is surprisingly common but there is no need to suffer in silence as we can provide everything you need for better hearing.
‘We offer hearing tests with a hearing care professional, the latest high-tech hearing aids from world-leading manufacturers and aftercare for as long as you need us.’
The first step is a free 3-minute hearing check which monitors a patient’s hearing. It indicates if a patient would benefit from a full hearing test. This is also free and lasts about an hour. After that the results are explained and the range of hearing assistance and options is discussed.
