Hearing Loss Treatment

Hearing aids for sensorneural hearing loss

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.

With a hearing loss, you may be missing out on your favourite sounds.  See the video below on peoples favourite sounds. What is your favourite sound?






How hearing loss affects your life

Hearing is one of our most precious senses; it is essential for communicating, participating, socializing, relaxing and interacting. Hearing helps you to fully enjoy your life.

Hearing loss will disrupt all aspects of your life; professional, family and social life will be impacted. This is because it affects your ability to communicate and participate and it may lead to feeling frustrated, discouraged, embarrassed, isolated and even depressed.

Should I use one or two hearing aids?

Just like trying to look both ways with one eye, walking with one leg or trying to cut your steak with one hand, hearing with only one ear is also difficult, limiting and physically tiring.

Brains are designed to work with two ears. Information from both ears is used to help you identify the direction of sounds, distinguish speech in noise and deliver a balanced stereo quality to sound. Read more to find out how two well-fitted hearing aids will benefit you...

Impact of untreated hearing loss over time

Hearing loss, in most cases, occurs gradually over time. As a result, many people wait months or even longer before seeking professional help. You cannot delay doing something about your hearing loss and think that it will not affect you.

This is because, understanding sounds that you hear including speech, involves so much more than just the ear. Once the ear has detected sound, it is sent via neural pathways to the many areas of the brain that process it. This allows you to understand what the ear has detected, whether it is music, environmental sounds or the spoken words. It is your brain that actually “hears and understands”.

Keep hearing aid batteries out of the reach of children

Batteries used in hearing aids are small “button” size batteries and may be a hazard to young children. In fact, these small coin size batteries are found everywhere in the home including in TV remote controls, kitchen and bathroom scales, flameless candles and tea lights, reading lights, calculators, and talking books, not only hearing aids.

Due to the relatively high number of batteries used with hearing aids - hearing aid batteries will last between 1 and 4 weeks - it is important that all hearing aid users and carers of people using hearing aids are vigilant at keeping batteries out of sight and out of the reach of children.
