Dr. Lyndon Ear here!
And this month, we’re getting all hot and bothered over a rather special month in the audiology calendar…
Shall we tell you? Are you sure?
Oh, OK then…
It’s National Audiology Awareness Month No Less!
Can I get a “whoop whoop!”
As you can probably see, we’re a little bit excited about this, as “NAAM” is the only time of the year that we audiologists get to show you the weird and wonderful awesomeness of your ears.
Over the month, we’ll be sharing lots of interesting stuff on how to keep your hearing health healthy, along with some other exciting bits, too.
So, if you don’t already follow us, once you’ve finished up here, get on over to our social media pages and ensure you don’t miss out on all the fun.*
(*bet you didn’t think you’d ever associate that word with your ears!)
Oh, and don’t forget, if you or a loved one is experiencing anything untoward with your hearing right now, you can always book a hearing assessment with us, so we can ensure everything’s in working order.
Let’s hear it for NAAM!

Here, Have A Hearing Health Tip On The House…
Raising awareness is all about going back to basics and drumming in the facts.
So, our health tip this week is about how you can prevent hearing loss from happening in the first place, and we’ll give you a clue – it ain’t rocket science!
Firstly, if you’re around loud noise, simply walk away from it.
Secondly, if you can, just turn the volume down!
Finally, if both are unavoidable, wear ear protection.
Who said staying safe needed to be complicated?
October’s Fun Fact
You know your ears are small, but did you know your ears are host to the tiniest bones in your entire body?
Yep, the “ossicles,” which collectively are 3 little bones and are smaller than a penny, are responsible for transmitting sounds into the inner ear.
Not bad for little guys, huh?
(Pssst…we’ll be sharing more of these fun facts across our social media pages this month! Just saying…)
