Hearing loss affects more than 500 million people around the world.
Hearing loss affects people in different ways. Over time, loss of hearing can influence communications and relationships with others in a negative way. By leaving a hearing impairment untreated, a physical condition may also become a psychological one. This is why it is so important to seek a solution promptly.
If you have hearing loss, then it helps to know that you’re not alone. About one in six people have some degree of hearing impairment. It’s reassuring to know that a properly fitted hearing aid can improve communication in at least 90% of people who have difficulty hearing.
