Hearing Loss: Types, Symptoms, Causes & Treatment


Hearing loss occurs when there is an issue with your hearing system. You can find it difficult to follow or participate in conversations if you have hearing loss. You can find it challenging to hear phone conversations, participate in online meetings, or comprehend discourse while watching television.

Your capacity to work, interact with others, and generally enjoy life can all be impacted by hearing loss. Most of the time, hearing loss is irreversible. However, audiologists (doctors who focus on identifying and treating hearing loss) can be of help. They can make recommendations for hearing loss treatment like cochlear implants or hearing aids.
