You may have some hearing loss and damage as a result of long term exposure to high noise levels from landscaping equipment such as blowers and mowers.

You may want to have an audiometry test. An audiometry exam tests your ability to hear sounds. Sounds vary based on their loudness (intensity) and the speed of sound wave vibrations (tone).

Start using protective hearing muffs or plugs to prevent further hearing loss.
