Symptoms of Hearing Loss
Difficulties hearing soft sounds, difficulties understanding speech in noisy situations or problems localizing sounds are amongst the common symptoms of hearing loss.
Types of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss can be thought of as congenital or acquired. Congenital hearing loss is present at birth but acquired hearing loss appears later on in life. Hearing loss can be categorized in 3 types by which part of the hearing system is damaged: Conductive (when there is a problem with outer or middle ear), Sensorineural (when the cochlea and /or and hearing nerve is damaged) and Mixed (when both conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss are present).
Common Causes of Hearing loss
Age, noise exposure ototoxic drugs, ear diseases and trauma are the common causes of hearing loss in adults. Aging is the most common cause of hearing loss in adults and is normally seen amongst people aged 40 to 75. From 75 upward, the chances of suffering hearing loss become more.
Treatment for hearing loss
Hearing loss can be assessed, treated, and rehabilitated by audiologists. Treatment for hearing loss varies, based on the cause, severity and type of the hearing loss and its effects on your communication and lifestyle. To properly diagnose and treat a hearing loss problem – the first step is to have a hearing consultation with an audiologist and have a hearing test.
Our audiologists at our audiology clinics in Melbourne are hearing rehabilitation specialists and provide professional and personalized services to minimize the negative impact of your hearing loss, leading to improved outcomes and quality of life.
