Sensorineural hearing loss (or nerve deafness) is a permanent hearing loss which is best helped with well-fitted hearing aids.
Hearing loss can have a big impact on the quality of your life. This is because your hearing is essential for communicating, participating, socialising, relaxing and interacting with others.
If after your hearing assessment, your audiologist at Melbourne Audiology Centre, recommends treating your hearing loss with hearing aids, we recommend that you don't delay because:
- Hearing difficulties may lead to feelings of anxiety, isolation, embarrassment and even depression
- Auditory deprivation occurs with untreated hearing loss and results in loss of understanding of speech.
- Recent studies have shown the sooner you start wearing hearing aids the better the results and your quality of life
- The sooner you start wearing your hearing aids the sooner you will be able to hear all your favourite sounds
Our audiologists are experts in all aspects of hearing, they keep abreast of the latest in hearing aid technology
to offer you the best hearing loss treatment solution. They are also experts in helping you to achieve the best hearing that is possible for you by supporting you as you on your journey to better hearing.
One or two hearing aids?
We are often asked if wearing one hearing aid only will do. If you have a hearing loss in both ears, two hearing aids are recommended for multiple well-researched reasons. Read why here.
With the latest hearing aids, we can help you hear your favourite sounds.
