Hearing loss can be caused by many different causes, some of which can be successfully treated with medicine or surgery, depending on the disease process. Certain conditions, including age, illness, and genetics, may play a role in hearing loss. Modern life has added a host of ear-damaging elements to the list, including some medications and plenty of sources of loud, ongoing noise.
With so many untreatable cases of hearing loss, prevention is the best way to keep hearing long-term. If you've already lost some hearing, there are ways to stay connected and communicate with friends and family.
Hearing fades so slowly you don't notice it. You may think that people are mumbling more and you need a better phone. As long as some sound still comes in, you could assume your hearing is fine. But you may become more and more cut off from the world of speech and sounds.
If you feel like you have any of these symptoms it is very important to check your hearing. To get in touch with our Audiology Department please contact 7025646600
