What is hearing loss?
Hearing loss is any degree of impairment in the ability to detect or comprehend sound.
For hearing to occur, sound waves pass through the external, middle and inner ear, where they are translated into nerve impulses and sent to the brain, which then interprets those signals as sound. Any interruption to this process can cause a partial or total loss of hearing.
Hearing loss is a common condition that affects one out of three people by the age of 65. It’s not just a disease of the elderly, however. Hearing loss is increasingly common in younger people who are exposed to excessive noise levels.
