What is hearing loss?

Hearing loss can be defined as a partial or total inability to hear in one or both ears.

In children a hearing problem can affect the ability to learn spoken language and in adults it can cause work related difficulties and have a negative impact on their emotional and social well-being. In older people it can lead to severe loneliness.

Treatment of a hearing loss

After the diagnosis of a hearing loss, the patient will either be referred for further medical treatment or the option of hearing aid fitting will be discussed, depending on the type and degree of impairment.
