Conference at Réseau Vos Oreilles
Improving your hearing
A conference about hearing was hosted by Réseau Vos Oreilles, a local business in the Galeries Aylmer, May 16. The audience was composed of people who want to learn about healthy hearing. Dr Ualace Campos was the presenter at this conference, he is a training specialist with hearing aids and Signia accessories. He spoke on the topics of tinnitus and healthy hearing habits. Dr Campos provided tips for improving hearing.
Advice was offered to those present about hearing. One of these is to avoid putting Q-Tips deep into an ear. To remove wax, he suggested, it is better to allow the wax to come out on its own.
Tinnitus and how it develops was another subject tackled at the conference. Tinnitus presents as a ringing, buzzing or other unusual noise that only the sufferer hears. It is a sound that comes from inside the head of the person and can be either constant or intermitent. Tinnitus affects every age group, not just seniors and is increasing in the population that uses headphones at high volume.
