Consider this: For every row on a vision chart a patient over the age of 50 advances, they are approximately 18% more likely to have a hearing loss. Vision and hearing care often overlap due to a common disease source or syndrome. Co-management by two doctors is common, but for less severe conditions including mild to moderate hearing loss, a certified optometrist or assistant can help. In cases where the loss exceeds moderate, or if abnormalities are discovered, a referral to one of our audiology partners is necessary. Examining the ear for wax, basic hearing screenings, and hearing aid fittings for mild to moderate hearing loss are generally within the scope of a nonspecialized, but trained professional.
