Hearing loss is often defined in the three following ways:

Obstructive Conductive Hearing Loss

As sound travels from the outer/middle ear to the inner ear, a disruption to the sound’s path is usually classified as conductive hearing loss. An obstruction in the ear canal, from ear wax to liquid, can also cause this type of hearing loss, as sound is prevented from reaching the ear drum. From ear wax removal to medical and surgical treatments, there are many treatments for conductive hearing loss, all provided to residents of Wheatley in one of our advanced hearing clinics.

Sensorineural Hearing Loss And Its Prevalence

The most often occurring type of hearing loss is sensorineural hearing loss (or sensorineural deafness), which often makes sound unclear or difficult to hear. With sensorineural hearing loss it may seem like others are mumbling or that their voices are distorted in conversation. Often caused by the natural aging process, sensorineural hearing loss can also be a side effect of excessive exposure to noise. This type of hearing loss can often be treated with the use of hearing aids, which we provide and install within our hearing clinics near Wheatley.
