HEARING loss is often gradual and subtle, hence commonly ignored. Often, it can only be detected through carefully performed hearing tests.
An individual with hearing difficulty may feel that other people are mumbling when speaking, regularly be told that the television is turned up too loud, find group and telephone conversations hard to follow, and often ask others to repeat themselves.
About 10% of the population is hearing impaired. Sensorineural damage ( nerve deafness) is the most common form of hearing loss.
Otitis media ( ear infection) is the most common cause of temporary hearing loss, which affects 70% of infants and young children.
Presbyacusis is the most prevalent hearing loss that occurs with old age, leading to speech discrimination difficulty.
Continued exposure to loud sounds over a long period of time can accelerate permanent hearing loss.
However, hearing instruments can improve hearing difficulty for approximately 95% of those who are hearing impaired. Who should be tested?
Every child should have a hearing assessment as soon as possible after birth. Early identification and intervention is crucial for language development.
Every adult who is regularly exposed to high noise levels should have a hearing test at least once a year.
Every person who experiences the slightest difficulty with hearing should undergo a hearing assessment for early detection and intervention to help preserve communication and listening skills.
