About hearing loss

Sound plays a very important part in our lives. It allows us to communicate and receive information, enjoy the sounds of nature, and listen to music – so it’s difficult when our ability to hear sounds is hindered.

If you do have trouble hearing speech or other sounds, you probably have a hearing loss. Hearing loss can affect people of all ages. Since hearing naturally deteriorates with age, the most common type of hearing loss is age-related. Other causes of hearing loss include noise exposure, infection or illness, and impacted earwax.
