How to prevent Hearing Loss?

We can prevent the risk of hearing loss by just following some basic steps:

Protecting the ears: Specially designed earmuffs or headphones with sound cancellation technology can be used to protect the ears from loud sounds/noises. We can prevent exposure to loud noises with the help of these aids

Timely Checkup: As the saying goes, "Prevention is better than cure", timely checkup of the ears can be one of the best alternatives to prevent hearing loss as it may reveal any problems. Treatment at the same time may reduce the risk.

Avoiding Recreational Activities: Everything in excess is harmful, so crossing the boundaries may lead to few problems. In the context of hearing loss recreational activities include listening to loud music, using earphones or headphones frequently, maximizing the exposure to loud music, etc. Turning down the volume when listening to music and taking breaks from loud noises can help you avoid ear damage.
