About Hearing Loss
1. Sensorineural – The most common type, this occurs when the inner ear nerves and hair cells are damaged and don’t properly transmit auditory signals to the brain. This type of hearing loss can be treated with hearing instruments.
2. Conductive – This type of hearing loss is typically the result of obstructions in the middle ear and usually can be treated medically or surgically.
3. Mixed – This type of hearing loss is a combination of sensorineural and conductive.
