might be a parent, a teacher, or a teenager. You could be an avid
hiker, a sportsman, or a couch potato. You could prefer a quiet
evening at home, or live for the nightlife. You could be any one of
these people, and you could also be suffering from hearing loss.
50 million Americans are living with some degree of hearing loss, and
the only thing that separates them are they steps they took to
overcome it. Acknowledging your condition as a fact rather than
something you need to suffer gives you the power to take the first
step—to have the courage to say that you won’t let hearing loss
get in your way.
Hearing Aid Center is more than just hearing device retailer. We can
explain what is causing your condition, discuss whether the effects
can be reversed, and help you choose a hearing aid device that can
restore the hearing abilities you have lost.
condition may be classified by the degree (mild, moderate, or severe)
and by the type of hearing loss, including:
The most common type of hearing loss is sensorineural, meaning it
affects the inner ear or auditory nerve. Age, noise exposure, inner
ear infections, inner ear damage, and conditions that affect the
cochlea are the usual causes. A patient with this type of hearing
loss may say that she can hear when people are talking, but she has
trouble understanding what is being said. Over 90 percent of hearing
aid users have sensorineural hearing loss.
Conductive hearing loss is caused by interrupted sound waves in the
ear canal. Sounds often seem muffled or quieter because the eardrum
and bones in the middle ear cannot conduct the sound effectively.
Infections, obstructions, a blockage of earwax in the ear canal, or
fluid buildup in the middle ear can all result in conductive hearing
loss. Depending on the cause, the condition may be treated with
medication or a hearing aid.
Some patients have a combination of sensorineural and conductive
hearing loss. The damage may have occurred in the outer ear and
middle ear, or the patient may have suffered a perforation (hole) in
the eardrum. Minor or moderate loss can be successfully treated with
hearing aids, while a severe degree of mixed hearing loss may
a mild degree of hearing loss may be merely irritating now, it can
lead to serious complications if not treated properly. Patients may
begin to suffer dizziness or other balance problems, become
increasingly anxious or depressed, or even stop doing the activities
they enjoy—all because they are afraid they will not be able to
understand the people around them.
matter what kind of hearing loss you have, our hearing care
specialists can investigate the condition and advise you on the
treatment plan that works for you.
