Sound Check Ireland 2017
Sound Check Ireland 2017 is a campaign which encourages Irish adults to take a more proactive approach to their hearing health. Recent research commissioned by Specsavers revealed the majority of Irish adults (69%) have not had their hearing tested in the last five years.
Audiologist at Specsavers Limerick, Bryan O’Connor, commented: ‘Specsavers recommends that those over the age of 55 should have their hearing tested every two years.
'Hearing loss can be gradual and many people might not notice that they are struggling with proper hearing and without treatment, hearing loss can lead to depression, frustration and anxiety. Because of the slow progression of hearing loss, identifying the problem early and addressing hearing loss with an expert can mean preserving the ability to communicate with friends and family well into later life.
'The Specsavers Hearing Van is designed to ensure that anyone who is concerned about their hearing has access to free and professional advice.'
