Hearing is essential to full enjoyment and participation in life.  Unfortunately, over 30 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss.  Many people are aware that their hearing has deteriorated but are reluctant to seek help.  Research shows that there are negative social, psychological, cognitive and health effects of untreated hearing loss….with far-reaching implications that go well beyond hearing alone.      According to the Better Hearing Institute, studies have linked untreated hearing loss to: *irritability, negativism and anger *fatigue, tension, stress and depression *avoidance or withdrawal from social situations *social rejection and loneliness *reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety *impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks *reduced job performance and earnings power *diminished psychological and overall health    The good news is that properly fitted hearing aids significantly improve the quality of life for their users.     Miracle-Ear has delivered superior sound quality and service for 65 years.  Advances in hearing technology offer better customization, remarkable overall sound clarity and improved hearing comfort.    The newest hearing aid technology from Miracle-Ear, ClearVation, provides a natural and effortless hearing experience with a customized balance of comfort and clarity and has twice the processing power of the previous generation of technology.    ClearVation hearing aid technology learns your individual preferences to deliver just-right amplification, for truly personalized sound.
