With age and repeated exposure to noise comes hearing loss. But being partially or completely unable to hear shouldn’t sentence you to a life of torture. Some causes of hearing loss can be treated by surgery or medication. Conductive hearing loss which occurs due to problems in the ear canal, ear drum or the bones in the ear can be surgically treated. Sensorineural hearing loss which occurs due to damaged nerves can be treated by medical therapy depending on its cause.
Positive results can be seen by using hearing aids. Visit an ear doctor to understand the treatment options available for hearing loss.
