The premier eye care specialists in Sri Lanka embark on a new venture, this time not for the care of our eyes but our ears. The managing directors of Vision Care came to a decision to address the dire need of professional, complete hearing care in Sri Lanka in a crucial time where the prevalence of hearing loss is reported to be 9% in Sri Lanka. Hearing loss, unlike many other disorders tend to go unhindered by the general public until it causes a significant damage to the quality of a person’s life. Many of the hearing disorders are painless and have little or no symptoms. While some may be cured with medication, others are permanent. The detection of hearing loss in children is especially difficult and the parents notice only after a crucial period has passed them by. But a hearing loss no matter how small it may be in its severity will cause a significant effect on the person’s quality of life. Hearing loss has also been linked to conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia in the recent past. So, it is high time that we focus on our hearing health and give it its due importance.
