What is sensorineural hearing loss?

Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. This type of hearing loss is usually permanent and can be caused by exposure to loud noise, certain medications, aging, and certain health conditions. If you have sensorineural hearing loss, you may benefit from hearing aids or other assistive listening devices.

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.
