The team at Specsavers in Halesowen have been busy raising awareness about the importance of looking after your ears as well as your eyes.
Staff at the store hosted a hearing event in the Cornbow Shopping Centre – giving out travel wallets and hearing advice.
‘Occurring naturally with age, or as a result of too much loud noise over time, hearing loss affects one in six people in the UK,’ said Specsavers Halesowen audiologist Raj Kortana.
‘Unlike sight loss, it is often a very gradual process and can happen over several years, so people don’t realise their hearing is getting worse.’
Range of hearing services available at Specsavers
As well as offering free hearing tests with a hearing care professional, Specsavers also offers the latest high-tech hearing aids from world leading manufacturers and free aftercare for as long as you need it.
If you’re not sure whether you have a hearing problem, the store can carry out a three-minute hearing check as a quick and easy way to find out.
It’s free and you don’t need an appointment. If the audiologist thinks you would benefit from a full hearing test, that’s free too and you’ll be able to book an appointment for a time that suits you.
