Legendary Australian Actor, Garry McDonald Talks to AudioClinic about Hearing Loss
Date:7/2/2010

me, because I hadn't come on. I didn’t even hear the director yell ‘cut’. That’s obviously not real good. Looking back, Mr McDonald believes he had hearing loss for a couple of years before he realised it was a problem - but it was probably another two years after that before he did anything about it.

“I’m not sure why I put off seeing someone about it really,” said Mr McDonald. “I guess you don’t want to confront these things, and I think I was worried about having to wear some big, ugly hearing aid or something. Luckily my wife nagged me a bit and said, ‘why don't you do something about it, stop talking about it and do something about it’.”

Around the same time, Mr McDonald met a woman who had a hearing aid and it was so tiny and unobtrusive, it made him realise how good the latest hearing aids were. So he talked to his GP, who recommended he go to his local AudioClinic for a hearing test.

“I was a bit shocked when the Clinician said, ‘Oh, you're really quite bad,’ because, you know, I thought I was just sort of mildly hard of hearing!

But the people at AudioClinic were really good, very helpful. I’m very happy with my hearing aids. In fact, I’ve recommended AudioClinic to friends of mine,” said Mr McDonald.

“Life’s just so much easier now. Social situations are much easier and it's easier with work. You know, I don't have to keep on asking people to repeat themselves all the time. And going to the cinema is easier; going to the theatre is easier, much easier.

“Really, I can’t believe I put it off for so long,&r
