What causes hearing loss?

There are many different causes of hearing loss. It can be caused by exposure to loud noise, certain medications, aging, and certain health conditions. If you think you or someone you know may have hearing loss, contact Melody Audiology for a hearing test. We can help you identify the type and cause of your hearing loss and recommend the best treatment options for you.

Certain professions can put individuals at a higher risk for hearing loss due to exposure to loud noise on a regular basis. Jobs that involve loud machinery or equipment, such as construction workers, factory workers, and miners, are particularly high-risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Other high-risk professions include musicians, disc jockeys, and sound engineers, who are exposed to loud music for extended periods of time. In addition, military personnel, police officers, and firefighters may also be at an increased risk due to exposure to gunfire, explosions, and other loud noises in the course of their work. It’s important for individuals in these professions to take appropriate preventative measures, such as wearing ear protection, to help prevent hearing loss. Additionally, regular hearing tests are recommended to monitor hearing health and identify any signs of hearing loss early on.
