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.

It happens. But what if it is happening to you more than usual? Maybe your friends and family have noticed it too?

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.

Qualified audiologists

Having hearing loss does not always mean that you need a hearing aid. The qualified audiologists in store will be able to tell you how much hearing you have lost, and advise you on how to manage it.

If you do need a hearing aid, there is a wide selection – designed to fit in with your lifestyle – available in store at competitive prices, with no extra cost to get one which is small and subtle.

Nothing to lose, everything to gain

Martin East, store director in Seaford, said: ‘People do not always like to admit to having a problem with their hearing, but it affects around one in six of us in the UK according to a report by Action on Hearing Loss. At Specsavers, we do not charge any extra for “in the ear” and “in the canal” hearing aids or for the small and discreet modern models which fit behind the ears.

‘We recommend that everyone over the age of 55 should have an annual hearing test. Our qualified hearing professionals will give you a comprehensive hearing assessment for free, with no obligation to buy a hearing aid. So you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.’
