Free hearing screenings Tuesday at Beltone Hearing Aid Center

Posted: Updated:
Members of the Beltone Hearing Aid Center in Scottsbluff are having free hearing screenings on Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
 
Hearing aid specialist Ron Miller says a common problem he notices during the screenings is ear wax build-up.

He says 20 to 25 percent of hearing loss can come from wax build-up alone.

Miller says not every one needs a hearing aid but getting checked is important.
 
"I have people who come in here who quit going to this meeting and quit going to bingo and things came on so gradual that they don't realize the hearing problem that they have...it's no fun sitting in the room talking and just laughing because you don't understand what people are talking about, it does make a better way of life for them,"said Miller.
 
Miller advises people visit their family doctor first for any reason and then seek an ear specialist if needed.
