Unfortunately, there is no cure for bilateral hearing loss, however, there are a range of treatment options, depending on the cause and the severity of the case.
For most cases of bilateral hearing loss, a hearing aid will be fitted to each ear to improve hearing and minimise any difficulties that can arise when you are suffering from hearing loss. A hearing aid simply amplifies the sound around you, directing it straight into your eardrum, ensuring you hear sounds more clearly.
From an improved ability to hear conversations in varied environments to increased confidence and connection - there are a number of benefits to hearing aids.
With a wide range of hearing aids available, at Boots Hearingcare, we’ll help you to find the perfect fit.
For more extreme cases, or if you’ve been suffering from profound hearing loss from birth, cochlear implants are a great choice. An electronic device that is surgically inserted into the inner ear, cochlear implants are a popular solution and work by replacing the damaged nerves used to send electrical signals to the brain.
