Diagnosing hearing loss
Understand how hearing works and how health professionals diagnose hearing loss - the first step in identifying your options.
Whether your hearing loss was sudden or gradual, or if you've never been able to hear, every day brings a reminder of what you're missing: music, conversations, stories and laughter.
The good news is that with an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment for your specific needs, you could rediscover the life you love or build a new one.
It starts with knowing what to look for and knowing when and how to find a hearing health professional who is qualified in all solutions, from hearing aids to hearing implants.
