Hearing Loss

Hearing loss or presbycusis is a common progressive condition that can be of three types; conductive, sensorineural or mixed. It is usually an irreversible condition but can be easily managed with proper hearing aids. The most important risk factors are aging and chronic exposure to loud noise. Reversible causes of hearing loss are those of neurological etiology or excessive earwax.
