Hearing Loss Singapore

Hearing is one of the most vital senses and is an essential part of communication exchange. It is a complex sense involving both the ear’s ability to detect sounds and the brain’s ability to interpret those sounds, including the sounds of speech. Any damage to this sense can affect one’s personal and social lifestyle.

Factors Causing Hearing Loss

Hearing impairment or hearing loss is a common problem caused by various factors such as noise, aging, disease, and heredity. Factors that determine how much hearing loss will negatively affect a person’s quality of life include:

s

Degree of the hearing loss

s

Pattern of hearing loss across different frequencies (pitches)

s

Whether one or both ears is affected

s

Areas of the auditory system that are not working normally, such as the middle ear, inner ear, neural pathways, or brain

s

Ability to recognize speech sounds

s

History of exposures to loud noise and environmental or drug-related toxins that are harmful to hearing

s

Age

Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse. If you think you have a hearing problem you should see a professional. An audiologist will perform a hearing assessment or hearing test and try to find out why you have a hearing loss and offer different options.
