Your hearing loss
The most common causes of hearing loss are aging and exposure to loud noises but there are three main types of hearing loss;
- sensorineural hearing loss
- conductive hearing loss
- mixed hearing loss
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common and it occurs when your inner ear nerves and hair cells are damaged. Sensorineural hearing loss impacts the pathways from your inner ear to your brain. In most cases sensorineural hearing loss cannot be corrected medically, or surgically, but it can be treated and helped by wearing hearing aids.
Conductive hearing loss is typically caused by blockages in your outer or middle ear due to fluid, earwax or even tumours. These blockages prevent sound from getting to the inner ear. These issues should be referred to the doctor for further consultatons.
Then there is mixed hearing loss which is a combination of sensorineural and conductive.
A consultation with a good, professional hearing care consultant at Clariti can help you quickly determine the cause, type and degree of your hearing loss and we will help you find suitable hearing care solutions or refer you to a doctor that can treat you quickly.
Suitable hearing solutions
Hearing aids and cochlear implants are the most common, and most effective, hearing care solutions. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that is surgically implanted in your ear to bypass damaged parts of your ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve. Hearing aids are very different as they amplify sounds so they can be detected by damaged ears. Hearing aids are the most popular choice for the majority of people suffering from hearing loss but for those who are deaf or severely hard of hearing, cochlear implants may be a better option.
