Is your hearing at risk?
Updated On: Jan 13 2014 09:20:52 AM HST
Repeated exposure to loud noise can damage the delicate, sound-sensitive hair cells in your inner ear. You can't reverse hearing loss, so take steps to protect your hearing:
1. Turn down the volume on headphones.
2. Wear earplugs or other protection when you're around noisy tools, equipment or firearms.
3. If you're frequently around loud noise, ask your doctor about yearly hearing exams.
