Hearing loss affects over 3 million Australians

We don't usually think twice about the health of our hearing, but consider these facts:

  • One in six Australians are affected by some degree of hearing loss.1
  • Hearing loss can get worse with age, affecting three in four by the age of 70 and over.2
  • Hearing losee can be gradual so some people may acclimatise to the change rather than realise they have a problem.

With hearing impairment affecting over 3 million Australians, hearing check-ups should be as routine as an eye test.3

Is your hearing as good as it used to be?
