Someone who is not able to hear as well as someone with normal hearing – hearing thresholds of 20 dB or better in both ears – is suffering from hearing loss. Hearing loss varies with the condition. It may be mild, moderate, severe, or profound, and can affect one ear or both ears. Hearing loss may also lead to difficulty in hearing conversational speech or loud sounds.
It is a condition that affects the outer or middle ear preventing the sound from reaching the inner area of the ear. Conductive hearing loss can be treated by proper medication and surgeries with a consultation to an ENT Specialist in most cases but in some particular cases, it is recommended to use hearing aids.
Sensorineural Hearing Loss is caused due to any kind of damage/injury to the inner ear or nerve supplying the inner ear. It is common amongst aged people. An audiologist can help you find a perfect aid as per your condition in this case.
Mixed hearing loss is a combined form of both Conductive Hearing Loss and Sensorineural Hearing Loss. One can overcome this deficiency with the help of hearing aids. .
Every person receives different patterns of audiograms depending on their hearing ability. If you are facing any issue in the hearing, get yourself checks and based on your hearing loss pattern, you will be provided with an ideal hearing aid.
