Three Types of hearing loss
This occurs when the eardrum, bones and membranes do not properly transmit vibrations to the cochlea. Causes include traumatic head injury or birth defects, wax occlusion and middle ear infections.
This is characterised by deterioration of hair cells in the cochlea. Causes include the aging process and excessive exposure to loud noise.
Hearing loss happens gradually and can sneak up on you without your realising there is a problem.
