According to the Better Hearing Institute, approximately 30 million Americans experience tinnitus. That is 10 percent of the population. Approximately 13 million people are aware of their tinnitus but are not aware that they have a hearing loss. Many of these individuals are not seeking any help because they feel there is nothing that can be done. However, many of these people could obtain help with their hearing and relief from their tinnitus with hearing aids. This is why it is important to see an audiologist for a comprehensive hearing evaluation.
