Age related hearing loss
Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) is the loss of hearing that gradually occurs in most of us as we grow older. Hearing loss can also make it hard to enjoy talking with family and friends, leading to feelings of isolation. Age-related hearing loss most often occurs in both ears, affecting them equally.
Treatment options for age–related hearing loss may include the following:
Hearing aid(s) Assistive devices, such as telephone amplifiers or technology that converts speech to text. Training in speech-reading (to use visual cues to determine what is being said) although the letter is not recommended in modern audiology.
